Afternoon! We are launching collections on the Smithsonian Learning Lab today, starting with Henrietta Swan Leavitt. We hope that these collections will help students and teachers learn about the work of female astronomers.
wow, we've hit 5,000 volunteers on our @the_zooniverse project! it's so exciting to be able to work with volunteers and connect people to citizen science. thank you to everyone who has helped out on the notebooks of these female astronomers!
Heard the news about #Venus ?
Check out phaedra notebooks 0127 and 0173 (and others!) to see images and notations about Venus from the 1850s. Use our finding aid below to check out the digitized notebooks!
