    Marie Curie

    Marie Curie (1867-1934) worked closely with her scientist husband, Pierre Curie (1859-1906), and together they discovered two new elements: polonium and radium. After Pierre's death, Marie Curie continued to research radioactivity (a term she coined) and her work eventually earned her a second Nobel Prize. Marie Curie was the first person to be awarded two Nobel Prizes. Marie Curie's work led to the use of X-rays in medicine and laid the foundation for the new discipline of atomic physics.

    Marie Curie. Born in 1867, in Poland, she was a genius in physics and in chemistry; she is the first woman ever to receive a Nobel Prize and the only woman in history to receive two Nobel Prizes.

    Pierre Curie (1859–1906) was a French physicist, a pioneer in crystallography, magnetism, piezoelectricity and radioactivity. In 1903 he received the Nobel Prize in Physics with his wife, Marie Skłodowska Curie, and Henri Becquerel, "in recognition of the extraordinary services they have rendered by their joint researches on the radiation phenomena discovered by Professor Henri Becquerel".
