Denmark's unknown star

In October 2019 Theatre "Svalegangen" sets up a play about the Danish scientist Inge Lehmann.

"Jordens indre - videnskabsdrama om en kvindelig pioner"
(Interior of the Earth - science drama about a female pioneer)

Main actors: Iben Hjejle, Jesper Lohmann, Søren Malling.

Read about the play and purchase tickets at Svalegangen's web page (in Danish).

Inge Lehmann proved in 1936 that Earth has a solid inner core. Her research was groundbreaking, but through her career she had to fight for recognition from her male "competitors".

In the new neighborhood at Aarhus Ø, the streets are named for prominent Danish women, and Inge Lehmann is among them.
