Seriously? A strep infection?
I don’t have time for this.
See what I’ve been up to lately over at the Women in Planetary Science blog: interviews with women who search for planets around other stars, who are studying Mercury — close up, and who actually made the material that collected pieces of the sun’s wind a couple years ago. Almost as interesting? They did all this while being mothers, wives, and, in one case, a daughter caring for an elderly parent. Through this research, I am learning that scientists aren’t always holed up in the laboratory — they have to deal with work-life balance just like all of us. On days like today, I find that not only fascinating, but reassuring. Check out the interviews and offer them words of support if you’re so moved, over at Women in Planetary Science.
