Working with EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum and their DFAT Historian-in-Residence, Dr Angela Byrne and using the stories of four Irish women who have contributed to major astronomical discoveries in the past century, Niamh will compare and contrast the lives of these women, their exceptional STEM careers, and how their curiosity united them.
