Women Scientists a Part of Grand Central’s Constellations
Unseen Stars

“We wanted to create a new universe for commuters to imagine, one where the uncelebrated are celebrated and the achievements of remarkable women are elevated to new heights,” said Linda Boff, GE’s chief marketing officer. Image credit: GE.

Within the Main Concourse at Grand Central is a massive constellation ceiling. Rumored to have been put on backward, allegedly the Vanderbilt family (the original owners) claimed it was meant to be viewed from a divine perspective. From September 19 through September 21, “Unseen Stars,” projected the faces of distinguished female scientists into the galaxy of the ceiling at Grand Central. Mildred Dresselhaus, the “queen of carbon,” was the first woman to receive the National Medal of Science in engineering. Dresselhaus died in February.

Other scientists featured included: Laurie Leshin, a geochemist who has searched for life on Mars; Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski, a quantum gravity researcher; and GE scientist; Danielle Merfeld, an engineer who helps machines talk to each other; adiyah-Nicole Green, a physicist who created treatment for cancer using lasers and nanotechnology; Jess Melbourne-Thomas, a marine ecologist who led an all-woman voyage to Antarctica to address climate change; Sossina Haile, a materials engineer who invented solid acid fuel cells for clean energy; Megan Smith, the first female chief technology officer of the United States; Neri Oxman, an MIT Professor who pioneered the field of material ecology; Kira Radinsky, inventor of an algorithm to predict global incidents and disasters; Sudha Maniam, an engineer who helped doctors see the brain in new ways; and Vera Cooper Rubin, an astronomer who discovered evidence of dark matter. In total there were 12 female scientists and engineers, remarkable women are elevated to new heights,” said Linda Boff, GE’s chief marketing officer.

This celebration of women working in science and technology was thanks to GE’s commitment to increase the number of women employed in technical positions.
