Okay, try to guess WHO IS THIS?



This woman paved the way for nuclear physics and cancer therapy. Her ashes (along with her husbands) were laid to rest under the famous dome of the Pantheon in Paris, alongside politician Jean Jaures, Resistance fighter Jean Moulin, and author Victor Hugo.

All right!!! I am NOT posting this picture for her sexiness.  Usually one does not match the face of an inventor with this face, but yes, folks, she was famous for inventing something.

Electrical engineers and military technicians all around the world revere her as the co-inventor of a very important technology.

Besides being a co-inventor, she is also ground-breaking in history for another type of achievement, one less feminist.

Questions:

1. What is the technology that she helped to co-invent?
2. What was her somewhat less feminist, but groundbreaking, achievement? (think film!  Benito Mussolini refused to sell his copy of something related to her groundbreaking act.)
3. Who is she?

Hint: Her first husband was a German Nazi armament manufacturer, whom she fled from.  Her other husbands included a lawyer, an actor, a Texas oilman, a nightclub owner, and a screenwriter.

Today, in many science and engineering circles, she is seen as a reminder that women of extraordinary beauty also have brains to match!

Yep! Hedy Lamarr.  She co-invented the frequency hopping technique, commonly used nowdays in military technology.  She was also groundbreaking for posing nude and faking an orgasm - much earlier than Meg Ryan - in the 1931 film Extase, which was notorious back then.
