    Jess Wade, a London physicist who's making sure women in science get the recognition they deserve. And she's doing it one Wikipedia article at a time. She challenged herself to write one entry every day this year. So far, she's written more than 280 -- each highlighting a woman or someone from another group underrepresented in science.

    "When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."
