Mrs Somerville’s Monument

Ooooo, exciting news! Our new film project has been selected to be part of the Women in STEM series at the Bristol Science Film Festival 2017!

Mrs Somerville’s Monument is the title, and is certainly linked to our previous post about Nobel prizes and the recognition of women in science (but a bit more Wisterlitz-y than that all sounds).

If you were wondering, this is a picture of the eponymous Mrs Somerville we are referring to:

And yes, there are already monuments in her honour (a statue, an Oxford college, an arctic island, a crater on the moon, an asteroid, a Scottish tenner…). But no, we are not talking about any of them.
