"stromer william herschel" Discussed on This Day in History Class

"Welcome to the stay in history class from how stuff works dot com. And from the desk of stuff you missed in history class. It's the show where we explore the past one day at a time with a quick look at what happened today in history. Welcome to the podcast. I'm Tracy Wilson, and it's August first. Caroline. Herschel was born on this day in seventeen eighty six. And she was the sister of Stromer William Herschel who was twelve years older than she was and she didn't have the same access to education or an independent life that he did as a woman in Germany in the late eighteenth century. But she wasn't just William's sister. She was an astronomer in her own, right. So when they were children, their parents, especially their father had a really strong idea of what he wanted their lives to be like. He really wanted William to study music and Caroline was destined to be a good wife and a homemaker. So I that was really how he steered their educations William learned a lot about things like music and philosophy, and French. And while sometimes Caroline did get to participate in the same sorts of study. She spent a lot more learning how to run a household, but in seventeen sixty. One Caroline contracted typhus and she almost died. She was so weak that she had to crawl up and down the steps in her house rather than walking up and down. And that went on for months. This illness was really serious, and it also affected her growth and her mother in particular thought she was not going to be attractive to men as a potential wife anymore. So instead of trading her to be someone's wife and run a household, they instead started focusing on the idea of her becoming a scullery maid. She would be doing a lot of the same work, but she would be doing it as a job, a job for pay rather than the unpaid job of being someone's wife. This whole time though, like I alluded to earlier, her father had been teaching your some things like music and philosophy on the side. But that came to an end after he became paralyzed after a seizure. And he continued to be in really poor health until seventeen sixty seven when he died and she was nineteen, but then in seventeen seventy one William proposed that his. Sister, Caroline come to work as his housekeeper and then also to accompany him in concerts. So she would sing and he would play the organ and she was ever -joyed at this possibility. She started practicing in secret, and finally, the two of them departed for England on August sixteenth of seventeen seventy two. Now, in addition to that musical career that his father had wanted for him so badly, William had also been studying astronomy including starting to publish some papers, Caroline started out by keeping his house and keeping the accounts. She sang on stage and she started working with her brother on his astronaut pursuits. She learned and she assisted until eventually William gave her own telescope. She started identifying and cataloguing clusters and galaxies in so many other astronomical bodies on August first of seventeen eighty six and for several nights after that night, she spotted an object that was moving in the sky that turned out to be a comet. This makes her the first one. Credited with discovering a comet and after she did. So William who by this point had become the king's astronomer lobbied for her to have an actual paid position. And she got one, this made her the first woman who was paid as a professional scientists in Great Britain. So William definitely opened a lot of doors for Caroline. She was able to get access to things she couldn't have had access to otherwise because she was his sister, but she was an astronomer in her own right and her work continued long after her brother's death in the decade. After that first comet discovery, she found seven more. She helped expand the number of known star clusters from one hundred to twenty five hundred. She earned medals from the Royal astronomical society from the king of Denmark, and from the king of Prussia, she became an honorary member of the Royal Society of London in eighteen thirty five in the Royal Irish academy in eighteen thirty eight. And today there are comets asteroids in a lunar crater named after her. He died on January ninth of eighteen forty eight at the age of ninety. Seven.
