We have previously profiled physicist Joshua Lederberg, giving him a rather high score. After all, he won a Nobel and was a pioneer in astrobiology. (It's a thing!)
As mentioned in his profile, Lederberg got his Nobel for proving that bacteria mate. (Sexy!) He didn't do that research alone.
Now, most (if not all) award-winning scientists get help from students or associates, while leading the work themselves. This wasn't the case here: Lederberg's research was a true partnership, but he was the only one who got all the accolades.
That partner? Esther, his wife.
The least we can do is give Esther as high a score as her husband...
