Stéphane Bern & Matthieu Noël SEASON 2021 - 2022 6:00 p.m., November 25, 2021

Historically Yours brings together 3 ladies who have their heads in the stars: Henrietta Leavitt (1868-1921), a scientist who revolutionized astronomy and who, by observing the stars, discovered at the beginning of the 20th century, how to measure their distance from the Earth.

Then, long before her, Caroline Herschel (1750-1848), a "noble and worthy priestess of the new heavens", as she was graced at the time, or the little-known fate of an astronomer who was the first to discover a star never observed before: a comet!

And a woman less light years away who reads in the stars: Élizabeth Teissier.
