Amalie (Emmy) Noether (1882-1935) devised, among other theories, the mathematical principle called Noether's Theorem, described as 'essential,' 'beautiful,' and 'integral'; it became a foundation of Quantum Physics and her calculations helped Einstein formulate his general Theory of Relativity. A Jew, she was forced by the Nazis to flee to the U.S. and then for the first time had a full professorship and salary. She tragically died a only year later in 1935 during surgery to remove a tumor...

Marie Curie

Marie Curie (1867-1934), physicienne française d’origine polonaise, dont le nom reste attaché à la découverte de la radioactivité. Au cours d’une carrière exceptionnellement féconde, elle fut la première femme à obtenir le prix Nobel, prix qu’elle reçut deux fois : prix de physique en 1903 et prix de chimie en 1911. Elle fut également la première femme à occuper le poste de professeur de physique générale à la Sorbonne.

The only person to hold two Nobel Prizes is a woman. Marie Curie was honored for her work in both Physics & Chemistry and her pioneering research in radioactivity changed history.

Nobel Prize winners Marie and Pierre Curie discovered radium in 1898.

Marie Curie ~ "Marie Skłodowska-Curie (7 November 1867 – 4 July 1934) was a French-Polish physicist and chemist famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes – in physics and chemistry. She was the first female professor at the University of Paris, and in 1995 became the first woman to be entombed on her own merits in the Panthéon in Paris."

LOVED THIS BOOK! Henrietta Lacks (August 1, 1920 – October 4, 1951)[1] (sometimes erroneously called Henrietta Lakes, Helen Lane or Helen Larson) was an African-American woman who was the unwitting source of cells (from her cancerous tumor), which were cultured by George Otto Gey to create an immortal cell line for medical research. This is now known as the HeLa cell line.
