Ada Day

Last year I celebrated Ada Lovelace Day at the Game Developer's Conference, where participants celebrated the legacy of Lord Byron's daughter, who created a name for herself working on the analytical engine of Charles Babbage. This year at Finding Ada, bloggers are encouraged to list at least one contemporary woman making a significant contribution to science and technology. My choice would be NASA's Shannon Bartell, who is a Director of Safety and Mission Assurance. I don't know if her voice was the one I heard at the the countdown to the WISE launch I witnessed, but whoever that Ada was I would recognize her with this post.
