#48 Caroline Herschel - So much more than just the sister of the guy who discovered Uranus

Cosmic Coffee Time with Andrew Prestage

Caroline Herschel is probably best known as the sister of William Herschel, the person credited with the discovery of planet Uranus, but there's a lot more to her than this. Caroline was a great astronomer in her own right, having made numerous discoveries using telescopes she helped make herself. She was also an outstanding musician and was the first female professional astronomer in the world, and was recognised with the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. Caroline Herschel achieved all this despite the life long effects of a significant childhood illness.Quite an incredible person.  Follow Cosmic Coffee Time on Twitter for some special content twitter.com/CosmicCoffTime You can request a topic for the show!
