Re: [Phys-L] Jocelyn Bell Burnell wins special Breakthrough Prize

It worked: I remember well the discoverer of the LGM, and not the laureate!

bc being aged has forgotten much, but not the LGM.

p.s. My supervisor was from the old school; I did all the work [1]; He wrote the paper, and is the first author.

[1] He supplied the app, but I improved it. This was at Keele U. (N. Staffordshire) 1966=>’69

In 1967, while she was a graduate student, Jocelyn Bell discovered
pulsars. This was a big deal. I was in high school at the time,
and generally clueless, but even I heard about it. Even weeks later,
nobody knew a good mechanism to explain the observations.
