"Since her death in 1979, Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin who discovered what the universe is made of has not received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks say the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. No one ever wonders how we know." ~J. Knowles
