Top Lady Scientists Show up in Webcomics

“New Scientist” magazine just named its top 10 women scientists of all time, including several ladies who have shown up in webcomics.

#1 on the list is Marie Curie, a groundbreaking physicist and chemist who discovered radioactivity and received the Nobel Prize in 1903 with her husband Pierre, and sure, she died of radiation exposure but it’s all kind of cute when Kate Beaton of “History Comics” draws it.

Countess Ada Lovelace — the first computer programmer, who was coding before computers existed — is #6, and her thrilling adventures with Charles Babbage are captured in an ongoing webcomic at 2D Goggles, which also explains her mysterious origin.
