Looking Up: The Glass Universe

The Glass Universe by Dava Sobel

In this episode of Looking Up, the important contributions of women in science have long been understood within the scientific community, but the public's awareness was raised by the best selling book and movie "Hidden Figures."

Now, another group of women scientists are being spotlighted in the book "The Glass Universe: How the Ladies of the Harvard Observatory Took the Measure of the Stars" and the author, Dava Sobel, joins Dean Regas and Anna Hehman.

Dean Regas is the Astronomer for the Cincinnati Observatory and a renowned educator, a national popularizer of astronomy and an expert in observational astronomy.
Anna Hehman is the Director of Development for the Cincinnati Observatory. Her official duties include ensuring the financial security of the Observatory and securing support for its outreach programs as well as exploring relationships with potential funders. Anna also has a Marketing background and manages the Observatory's social media, where she resists the urge to post adorable animal videos on the O's social media accounts with almost 100% success.
