Astonishing discoveries await Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own. But this brilliant, headstrong pioneer must struggle for recognition in the man’s world of turn-of-the-century astronomy. In this blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, a passionate young woman must map her own passage through a society determined to keep a woman in her place. This true story of Henrietta and other early 20th century female “computers” at Harvard Observatory details their extraordinary work and highlights the enormous impact they had on the advancement of science.
