Best thing I listened to today: Jenny Agutter’s choice of Lise Meitner for “Great Lives”, Radio 4. Listen again here, if you so wish. Late-night BBC reminiscing about a great physicist who later eschewed public recognition for her work in nuclear science, having first been disregarded herself because of being a woman. Picture borrowed from a site entirely dedicated to pictures of famous physicists. Who’d have thought it?
Best mittens of the day: these Antler Mittens by Alexa Ludeman.
