Project PHaEDRA - Jenka Mohr - M55, LMC Variable, 28. (phaedra2448)

About the Project

At Harvard College Observatory (now the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian), Women Astronomical Computers studied glass plate photographs of the night sky. Here they cataloged stars; identifying variables, interpreting stellar spectra, counting galaxies, and measuring the vast distances in space. Several of them made game-changing discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics. In these books, follow the work of Jenka Mohr who studied galaxies, star clusters, and the history of the Observatory's previous directors. Interested in the history of science? Love astronomy? Help us transcribe the work of the Harvard Observatory's women computers and early astronomers and see which stars shine the brightest. PLEASE NOTE: Project PHaEDRA notebooks are quite unique, and we have a special set of instructions for them. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines.
