She certainly did have an amazing life, didn't she? I'm ashamed to say I hadn't heard of her either, but I asked dh and he had, although only vaguely.

Thanks for posting, it was interesting reading.

I'd never heard of her until I read her obituaty yesterday, which is a shame but not unsurprising. Given the scarcity of women who win Nobel prizes especially in the sciences, I thought it was worth a flag up and thought people might be interested. She certainly seemed to have led an interesting and eventful life.
