Virginia Trimble

'The normal culmination of a piece of scientific research is a published paper presenting the work in a recognized journal. Here Dr. Virginia Trimble is reading the proofs of such a paper which describes work on measuring the distance to the Crab Nebula. The proof-reading stage is the last chance to avoid making a fool of oneself!', Credit Line: American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), courtesy AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives.
