“We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing.” 
Maria Mitchell is known as the first professional female astronomer in the United States. On October 1, 1847, she peered through her family’s telescope and “swept around for comets,” as she did every night it was clear. But that night she became the first woman in the U.S. to discover one. She later became the first Astronomy professor at Vassar College, where she would often ask her students, “Did you learn that in a book or observe it yourself?”

Most of us think of instant photography as a fixture of the last ten years, but in reality, Kodak introduced its first instant model over 60 years ago! 

LIFE magazine shared a set of photos by TIME photographer Co Rentmeester who was lucky enough to experiment with one of the very first Kodak SX-70s ever produced.
