Science is the poetry of Nature.

This is Jocelyn Bell Burnell,  a sad but common example of a women who discovered something awarded a Nobel Prize, but not given credit for her work.

"Born in Northern Ireland in 1943, she discovered pulsars in 1967 while still a graduate student in radio astronomy at Cambridge University in England.

Pulsars are the remnants of massive stars that went supernova. Their very existence demonstrates that these giants didn’t blow themselves into oblivion—instead, they left behind small, incredibly dense, rotating stars.

The finding resulted in a Nobel Prize, but the 1974 award in physics went to Anthony Hewish—Bell Burnell’s supervisor—and Martin Ryle, also a radio astronomer at Cambridge University.”
