Women have come a long way in the world of science since 1848, when Maria Mitchell became the first woman elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, having discovered a new comet the year before. In1903, Marie Curie became the first woman to win the Nobel Prize, awarded in Physics, and went on to also win the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. These remarkable women, and many, many more, paved the way for Kathryn D. Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space, who, in 2020, descended 35,810 feet to the Challenger Deep — making her the first person to both walk in space and to reach the deepest known point in the ocean. Celebrate their landmark achievements with these double helix earrings, a tribute to female scientists in all fields of study.
