McGill astrophysicist Kaspi wins highest science honour

She is not just the first woman but also one of the youngest researchers to ever win the prestigious prize.

You could say Kaspi has boldly gone where no woman has gone before.

Tung Thai Well I guess she would never have earned it under the reign of Harper and the now defunct Conservative Party of Canada!
