Williamina Fleming, part of Edward Pickering’s infamous “harem,” (really a group of women who performed calculations for his research) was the first to identify “white dwarves” and died 102 years ago today.

In 1819 the first bicycle was seen on the street of New York City. Officials were quick to ban these dangerous “velocipedes” from “public places and on the sidewalks of the city.”
