Vera Rubin

Denis Buczynski

It is interesting that the LSST is to be named after Vera Rubin.Her interest in astronomy has been life long and she has always been an active observer. Here are two pictures of her as a young woman one with her homemade telscope and the other using the refractor at Vassar College. So from humble instrumental begginings to the largest telescope in the World. There is progress for you!
