A laser physicist named Donna Strickland recently won the Nobel Prize in physics. That day, a Wikipedia page for her was created - the first mention of this particular scientist on the site. Her (male) co-scientist has had a page on Wikipedia since 2005. I enjoyed reading this article for a more in-depth look.
Had you heard of this woman before now? How did you hear of her? What other female physicists do you know of? Any? Why do you think that's the case?
