Caption: Portrait of the British astronomer Cecilia Payne- Gaposhkin (1900-1979). She mainly worked on problems regarding stellar atmospheres at the Harvard College Observatory, alongside an unusually large group of women astronomers such as Annie Cannon and Henrietta Leavitt. Her PhD thesis on stellar atmospheres was regarded by the American astronomer Henry Russell as one of the more comprehensive on this subject.
