Summary
"As a young girl, Henrietta Leavitt would gaze into the sky wondering about all the secrets it held. How far away were the stars? Was the sky really endless? Henrietta lived at a time when she was one of few girls in her college astronomy class. Later, she was only allowed to deal with routine matters in the observatory where she worked. But Henrietta Leavitt was determined to solved the mysteries of the sky!" - from inside cover flap
Summary
An illustrated portrait of astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt traces the years she spent measuring stars from her position at the Harvard College Observatory and her important discoveries that enabled the scientific community to gain a fuller understanding of the universe's vast size
