John M. Barry addresses his feelings about scientists and their research through the piece from, “The Great Influenza,” an account of the 1918 flu epidemic. He adopts a speculative tone and utilizes rhetorical strategies such as fallacies, metaphors, and word choice to characterize scientists research. Barry describes the positive mind set and the requirements to be a scientists.
Lise Meitner is one of the most revolutionary women in science. She was a physicist and was most well known for being one of the first to discover nuclear fission. Her discoveries led to atomic weapons, which later helped the United States during World War II. Her research made her one of the most important women in the field of nuclear physics. However, she was not given proper recognition for her ground-breaking discovery at the time. During the 1940’s women in the field of science faced innumerable types of oppression. From toxic stigma to little job opportunity. All of the drawbacks women faced let many with little opportunity for advancement.
In conclusion, Alice Augusta Ball has achieved many remarkable accomplishments such as being a significant person in our history for developing the cure for leprosy and making it injectable. In her ongoing research Ball was able to aid thousands in their fight against leprosy. She had also been the first African-American and women to graduate with a master's degree in the sciences from the University of Hawaii and become the first woman to teach chemistry at the university. One can say that after learning about the accomplishments that Alice Augusta Ball made and the obstacles that she overcame, she made her own path to success no matter the fact of her being dead.
Science is a complex and integrated system and much of today’s society lacks the means and resources to understand it. However, many of the greatest discoveries and issues of the 21st century our happening in the world of science. By using the work of fiction, Allegra Goodman discusses the issues that frequently arise in the world of science in her book, Intuition. Goodman uses this work of fiction to explore issues raised in the world of science through the use of descriptive text, character relations and the use of emotions. This adds value to science issues as it allows the reader to relate to the characters, story and science in a unique perspective.

Did you know that Annie Cannon was able to classify around a thousand stars a day during the peak of her career? This paper will be focusing on the life, career, and legacy of Annie Jump Cannon. Annie Jump Cannon was hired by Edward Pickering, and she worked as “Pickering’s assistant at the Harvard College Observatory” (1). After that, she was credited with coming up with an easy system that divided the stars into seven spectral classes. The spectral classes were as follows: O, B, A, F, G, K, M. Annie Jump Cannon’s career ended after forty years, but her work paved the way for women in the scientific community and continues to inspire fellow female scientists. Cannon was able to work hard enough that people in the scientific community looked past the fact that she was partially deaf and a woman. Annie Cannon is an important woman in the history of science because she was able to overcome sexism and a disability while developing her own revolutionary and important version of stellar classification.

Norman Guinasso was a promising scholar when he confirmed his passion for math and science, and eventually oceanography. However, the real seeds to his eventual career were sown as early as second grade when he fell in love with numeric problem solving. He went on to take physics and advanced chemistry in high school, dedicating himself to doing what he enjoyed. At the time, in 1957, the Russians had just launched the first man-made satellite, Sputnik, to orbit around the earth, causing great concern and fear among Americans. Although this appeared to be a problematic event, it actually opened up a world of new opportunities for the scientific community.
Lise Meitner was a risk-taker. Lise was a woman and back then it was really hard for men to accept that women could do the same things as men. Lise accomplished many things that women were not known to do. Lise Meitner was the second woman to get her PhD in physics at the University of Vienna. This was an amazing accomplishment, since it was almost impossible for women to attend public universities. That did stop her, she kept trying with every fall. She became a big part in the making of the atomic bomb. She soon became known as “Mother of the atomic bomb”.The atomic bomb helped end world War II. She also was one of the people that discovered nuclear fission. Lise was a big risk-taker for no giving up cause she was a woman and also she feels
