Yael Nazih, astrophysicist: “We have forgotten some stars in the history of astronomy”

At the invitation of the Astronomical Society of Geneva (SAG), Belgian astrophysicist Yael Naze, researcher at the University of Liège, will give a public lecture on feminist astronomy on November 23 for the first time in Switzerland. This entry is taken from a paper on his eponymous work, which was republished several times and translated last year into Japanese. This specialist in massive stars—objects much larger than our sun—is passionate about the pitfalls often faced by female astronomers whose major contributions have not been remembered in the history of science.
