Women Who Changed Science Now Beautiful Minimalist Posters



Artist, designer, and Tumblrer Hydrogene has put together a series of six minimalist posters featuring the work of women who changed the face of science, and history. For example, the now eighty-five-year-old Rear Admiral Grace Hopper developed the first computer compiler, came up with the idea that we should really create a programming language that would work on more than one individual computer, and popularized the term “bug” and “debugging” in their use in computer programming, after fishing a moth out of the workings of the Mark II supercomputer in 1947.

    Oh we all adore Grace Hopper
    After COBOL you can’t stop her
    There is no-one who can top her
    And she’s good enough for me.

    I so squeed when that guy won on Millionaire on a Grace Hopper “bug” question.
    The Smithsonian has the log book in question, but it was not on display. Someday…

    These are great — Grace Hopper offers so many “minimalist” images, but the bug is the best!

    I asked Hydrogene but got no response. Sad.
