Decades before NASA and the female scientists celebrated in the movie “Hidden Figures,” there was Henrietta Leavitt. A female “computer,” Henrietta was an astronomer who wasn’t allowed to use a telescope because she was a woman. Yet it was Henrietta’s discovery that truly expanded the known universe while bringing us closer to understanding our place in it. Boundless determination. Bold love. Henrietta’s story spans the cosmos.
