I’ve written about the stunning work of Rachel Ignotofsky before. She creates beautiful illustrations, many with sciency themes like this desert ecosystem print or this anatomy of a flower. Rachel recently released new art – and a new book – celebrating the groundbreaking work of women in science. These world-changing women are perfect role models for aspiring young scientists and it is so great that artists like Rachel remind us of their legacy and the paths they paved for us.
Rosalind Franklin – the chemist who discovered the structure of DNA.
Valentina Tereshkova – the first woman and first civilian to fly in space.
