A hundred years ago, women who worked in astronomy were not allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. But that didn’t stop one spirited woman from making a groundbreaking astronomical discovery. With warm-hearted wit and infectious joy, Silent Sky tells the riveting tale of that woman’s dedication to the stars, and to the human touch that makes life under them beautiful and timeless.
