The striking story is a dramatization of Henrietta Swan Leavitt’s life and of the women ‘computers’ who mapped the stars at the Harvard Observatory. They performed incredible complex calculations on astronomical objects, without ever seeing the objects in the telescope. Women were not considered to be scientists at the turn of the 20th century, but it was a women who discovered there is a straight line relation between a Cepheid variable star’s intrinsic luminosity (true brightness) and the log of its period. It is known as Levitt’s Law.
