Dr. Joceyln Bell Burnell – Short Documentary

July 29, 2021

Hey all! For those who haven’t seen it yet, there is a moving, 15-minute documentary about Dr. Bell Burnell on the NYTimes: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/27/opinion/pulsars-jocelyn-bell-burnell-astronomy.html?referringSource=articleShare

This documentary is in line with our career trajectory interviews and so I wanted to share it here. Dr. Bell Burnell shared the aspects she appreciated about her career and what she has accomplished, both in science and as a role model and supporter of minority students and scientists, despite the very public setback during her grad years. I was lucky to meet Dr. Bell Burnell as a grad student at one of those very events supporting students!
