    I still wonder why Noether isn't very famous. Noether's theorem is extremely important in physics. It states that whenever there is a symmetry in the physical laws, there is a corresponding conservation law. For example, laws of physics remain the same through translation. Translational symmetry corresponds to conservation of momentum. Similarly, rotational symmetry corresponds to conservation of angular momentum, and time symmetry corresponds with conservation of energy.
    She pretty much started the "search for symmetry" in physics, and you will find that symmetry (and the breaking of symmetry)  is a very important idea in particle physics.
