I swear that picture is from the Doctor Who intro, circa 1980.

"The first pulsar ever found was spotted by a young graduate student, Jocelyn Bell, who saw it tick-tick-ticking like a metronome every 1.33 seconds. Unable to imagine what could have caused such a regular signal, Bell and her advisor"

I do like it when someone is given direct credit for something, despite being treated with second-class citizenship because of his/her status.

"In 1974, Bell's advisor, Antony Hewish, was awarded the Nobel Prizefor Physics for the discovery of pulsars, making him the first astronomer to win the prize. Bell did not share in the prize."

This is reason why we should nuke the Swedes and any participant's university who didn't compensate the grad students who actually made all of the discoveries that warranted a nobel prize.
