I've corrected the prize date from 1985 to 1983, seems I was using websites with wromg info! Note even the AAAS website has her date of birth very wrong, so I'm checking the facts more deeply now.

More references: photo including her husband with Fred Hoyle photo with her husband and Fred Hoyle and Donald Clayton in 1974 photo of her and Donald Clayton in 2002 -Wikibob | Talk 22:53, 2004 May 18 (UTC)



I have recently added a fair amount of material to the page, based on several further references (see newly edited page), including her autobiography in the Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics, which may be considered authorative. I have especially added information on her role as one of the first women doing professional research in astrophysics. I know from conversations I had with her a few years back that this is very important to her.The preceding unsigned comment was added by JoernWilms (talk • contribs) .

no mention of expansion/contraction theory of universe[edit]

which she and her husband continued to support long after the BB which may itself need viable options.
