Awesome Stuff Women Did

Because women have done more in the past 10,000 years than just pop out babies and make sandwiches.

DISCLAIMER: We make no claim that all women featured here are saints. They did awesome stuff; the women themselves might not have been. Keep that in mind before sending angry notes.

“16-Year-Old Egyptian Scientist Finds Way to Turn Plastic Waste Into $78 Million of Biofuel!”
What Azza proposes is to break down the plastic polymers found in drinks bottles and general waste and turn them into biofuel feedstock. (This is the bulk raw material that generally used for producing biofuel.) It should be noted that this is not a particularly new idea, but what makes Azza stand out from the crowd is the catalyst that she is proposing. She says that she has found a high-yield catalyst called aluminosilicate, that will break down plastic waste and also produce gaseous products like methane, propane and ethane, which can then be converted into ethanol.

Can I be there when she accepts her Nobel Prize?  This woman has a hand I would very much like to shake.

Was the head of the Platonist school at Alexandria as a teacher of philosophy and mathematics.  Considered by some contemporaries as the greatest philosopher of her time.  Wrote a commentary on the 13-volume Arithmetica by Diophantus, a commentary on the Conics of Apollonius, and a text called “The Astronomical Canon.”  Edited the existing version of Ptolemy’s Almagest and her father’s commentary on Euclid’s Elements.  Contributions to science are reputed to include the charting of celestial bodies and the invention of the hydrometer, used to determine the relative density and gravity of liquids. (Hypatia of Alexandria)
