William Herschel discovered Uranus. So what did his sister do?

Science has historically been a man’s domain; yet look closely at the archive and you’ll find a silent army of dedicated women, researching and discovering.

This is a story of Time, Space, Curiosity and Passion: two women astronomers, from different centuries, look up at the same night sky and find themselves colliding in their search for understanding.


“The audience choked on the bared emotions and the wonderment of people seeing deep space for the first time”
The Guardian, John Vidal

STELLA is funded by Arts Council England, Science and Technology Facilities Council and The Institute of Physics.
