Number one on New Scientist's list of most inspirational woman scientists is, of course, Marie Curie. Paradoxically coming in at number nine is non-scientist Rachel Carson. Funny how science can be so unscientific.

Rachel Carson has absolute moral authority - like Cindy Sheehan

why is Marie Curie "inspirational?" The answer can only be because she's a woman. She made some important discoveries, but can't be classed as a genius at the level of Einstein, Galileo, Newtown, or Darwin. Nor was she Gauss or Turing. Those people are "inspirational," even if they are all men.
