In 1942, at the height of her Hollywood career, Hedy Lamarr patented a frequency-switching system for torpedo guidance that was two decades ahead of its time.




Most beautiful scientist in the world- Hedy Lamarr - Xinhua | English.news.cn

Not to pine about the "old days" but this was when women had style, grace and poise.....

I don't get this. I don't care how beautiful they are or are not as long as they are smart and can do their job.

All female scientists are beautiful, but some of them just barely. Here's the winner of the 2011 Google Science Fair, who is also exceptionally beautiful.

The runners-up weren't bad, either

Some certainly are, but it seems that judging women by how beautiful they are is pretty patronizing. Even if you say they're all beautiful, saying everyone is beautiful takes away the meaning of physical beauty. Not all scientists are beautiful. If judged solely on physical attractiveness I'd guess would score lower than a similarly well-off population of non-scientists (and I'd guess that would be true for men even more so than women, but true for both). Some scientists are also just not very nice people and ugly on the inside, too.

I will say that there's isn't much more attractive to me than intelligence, especially science/math nerdy intelligence.

Why would a tenured or tenure-tracked professor go work for a Wall Street Firm? I think the world is a better place when we can let scientists do science.
