What Great Scientists Did When They Weren’t Doing Science (infograph). Marie Curie was a simply astounding woman. She won the Nobel prize two times. The first time she won it in physics, in 1903, and the second time in chemistry, in 1911. But of course, there was much more to her life than just work. She had a husband and children….& she was also an avid long-distance cyclist. Get to know some of the interesting quirks behind the famous faces in science. Image via Premier Institute
