|Quote: "If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have a paradise in a few years."
Theme: The Untold Story of Chaos - Ellen Fetter and Margaret Hamilton. Thanks to Quantum Magazine the untold story of Ellen Fetter and Margaret Hamilton has been published now. As Joshua Soko wrote in Quanta Magazine, May 2019, the "Father of Chaos" Edward Norton Lorenz mentioned Ellen Fetter with special thanks in his masterwork paper "Determistic Nonperiodic Flow", 1962. Daniel Rothmann has noticed this in fall 2017. Rothmann then could reach Ellen Fetter, married Gille, by phone and found out the second very important person in Lorenz' research. It was Margaret Hamilton, who get special thanks from Lorenz, too. Fetter and Hamilton wrote the specific programs that revealed the signature of chaos. While Lorenz thanked Hamilton and Fetter, later chroniclers left these two female mathematicans out. The "Mothers of Chaos" worked on "Royal McBee LGP-30" that had a weight of 800 pounds and sounded like a passing propeller plane.
