Science Chicks From History is a new tumblr devoted to…you guessed it. Science chicks from history. My favorite entry so far:
Aglaonike. 2nd century BC Thessaly.
Cited as the first female astronomer in Greece. People thought she was a sorceress for her ability to make the moon disappear when she really was just predicting the time and area when a lunar eclipse would occur.
One must be wary of Ancient Greek sorceresses. Always making moons disappear with the power of science when you least expect it.
