National Medals of Science & National Medals of Technology and IIn case you missed the brouhaha caused by Dr. Yvonne Brill’s obituary in the The New York Times, check out the New Yorker blog’s response: Rocket Scientist Yvonne Brill and the Beef-Stroganoff Illusion. The post details the obituary that highlighted an exceptional women’s domestic life over her professional success (which including inventing awesome-sounding “propulsion system to help keep communications satellites from slipping out of their orbits”).

My advice for all the Lady Scientists out there: order take out.
