Meet Dr. Chien-Shiung Wu also known as the “First Lady of Physics”, the “Chinese Madame Curie” and the “Queen of Nuclear Research.” She moved to the US from China to work on the Manhattan project at Columbia University. Her expertise was in nuclear physics. She left China in 1936 on the SS President Hoover never to see her parents again.
Her colleagues, who asked for her help, would receive a Noble in their work to develop The Standard Model – a theory about particle physics – in 1957.
She did not receive the Noble. 🧐 She finally received recognition in 1978 as a Wolf Prize winner.
Inclusion matters.
