Here's an interesting story about a pioneering woman in science.

The woman who brought us the world

A half-century ago, Virginia Tower Norwood ’47 invented the first multispectral scanner to image Earth from space. Landsat 1 and its successors have been scanning the planet continuously ever since.

Virginia Norwood's high school career counselor suggested she become a librarian. Instead she went to MIT, invented the Landsat 1 Earth imaging satellite and scanned the World!
