Beakerhead: A Matter of Mettle

Meet the person behind one of the most significant scientific achievements of the 20th century.

Jocelyn Bell was a young physicist when she noticed “a bit of scruff” in the data gathered from deep space by the Cambridge, UK, lab where she worked. It was pretty subtle but oddly regular. She kept digging, and the rest is history. She famously discovered the pulsar, described as “one of the most significant scientific achievements of the 20th century.” Join Jocelyn Bell Burnell, one of the world’s outstanding physicists in conversation.
