Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell co-discovered the first radio pulsars in 1967. Despite being the first to observe the pulsars, she was excluded from the recipients of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1974. In 2018 she was awarded the Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics and gave the entirety of the £2.3 million prize to help increase diversity in the sciences.
