College, Girls, and Memes: cience | guff.com This woman proved the existence of dark matter Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. 👩‍🔬 In the spirit of today, @Science wanted to honor Vera Rubin, an amazing American astronomer! How’s that for alliteration? She was born in Philadelphia and grew up with an interest in astronomy. Rubin eventually earned her BA in astronomy from Vassar College and tried to enroll in the graduate astronomy program at Princeton, but they refused to send her a catalogue because women weren’t allowed in the graduate astronomy program...until 1975. Let’s let that sink in for a second. She ended up studying at Cornell University, learning quantum physics from Richard Feynman and quantum mechanics under Hans Bethe. While studying the Andromeda Galaxy with fellow astronomer Kent Ford, Rubin noticed that objects on the outer parts of the galaxy were spinning at the same speed as those on the inside, which was antithetical to the belief objects at the center of a galaxy move faster than those on the outskirts. It turns out that she discovered the existence of the unseeable stuff that affects the movement of galaxies! . .
