Fantastic generosity! Any minted archaeologists want to kickstart access bursaries, aimed at minority ethnic girls? 😁👍
Nobel. Fix it. “As a research student when pulsars were discovered, she was not included in the Nobel prize citation - despite having been the first to observe and analyse the astronomical objects (a type of neutron star that emits a beam of radiation).”
