She completed a B. One of the more outstanding physicists Australia has ever produced and one of the first people in the world to consider the possibility of radio astronomy, and thereby responsible for what is now a fundamental part of the modern lexicon of science, she was often the only woman in her classes at the University of Sydney. In she conducted research with William H. They determined that the magnetism of the earth had little or no effect on the vital processes of beings living on the earth by cultivating chick embryos with no observable differences despite being in magnetic fields up to times as powerful as that of the earth.
Some decades earlier it was a widely held belief that the earth's magnetic field produced extensive effects on human beings, and many people would sleep only with the head to the north and the body parallel to the magnetic meridian. Some of her fundamental contributions to solar radio astronomy came at the end of this period. Payne-Scott played a major role in the first-ever radio astronomical interferometer observation from 26 January , when the sea-cliff interferometer was used to determine the position and angular size of a solar burst. This observation occurred at either Dover Heights ex Army shore defence radar or at Beacon Hill, near Collaroy on Sydney's north shore ex Royal Australian Air Force surveillance radar establishment — however this radar did not become active until early
