This morning, the Smithsonian Photography Initiative—incidentally, big fans of Bitch—got in touch to let me know that they will be adding to their collection of Women in Science (you may remember that I mentioned it last year) and will be blogging about the images and the women as well. Today is the first entry on their blog 'The Bigger Picture': Publicity, Politics and Physics. Time for a history break from whatever you're doing—enjoy!
