I got info today from fermilab about the female genious Emmy Noether born 1923 in Germany. She was a mathematician that developed the beautiful Noether Theorem.
As she had a jewish heritage she had to emigrate from Nazi Germany to USA, Pensylvania were she died young, 14 April 1935 (aged 53) after a surgery and fever.
Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln tells us about her and explains her theorem:

She said “For every symmetry there is a conservation law”
- Noethers theorem tells something profound about the laws of Nature.
Einsteins said about her:
