Ada Lovelace Day!

It’s Ada Lovelace Day, friends!  Time to celebrate the achievements of women in science!  This year, not a single Nobel prize in a science field has been awarded to a woman, and female scientists still have many problems being, well, female scientists. But we have Ada Lovelace to remind us all that it is possible to live in a world in which people believe that math is physically bad for women and still manage to be completely fabulous at math.

It can be hard to be a women in math and science fields, but we have the shoulders of the Countess of Lovelace to stand on.

Science on, friends.

Operafied. Fluffified. Beglittered.
