This may not be the right place to put this but I wasn't sure where else.

And I wanted to commerate her cos I only just found out that Kevlar was invented by a woman! There's millions of people who can thank her that they are alive and healthy. And all female scientists should be celebrated cos they hardly ever get the kudos they deserve.

RIP to Ms Kwolek.

I didn't know that either, an awesome woman to be sure.
