Annie Jump Cannon


Google dedicated their home page to Annie Jump Cannon today. The Henry Draper Award winner classified and observed 500,000 stars, while breaking ground for women in science.

She also has a crater named after her on our Moon, and her stellar classification is standard (as determined by the IAU).
