Marie Curie ~(1867-1934) discovered that radiation came from the individual atom and not a group of molecules. She received a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1911 for discovering radium. She was the first woman to win a Nobel prize and the first person to win two Nobel prizes (one, with husband, Pierre, in Physics in 1903). She died in 1934 from leukemia having been exposed excessively to radiation before it was a known danger.

Marie Curie (Maria Skłodowska) in 1903 at the time she was awarded her Nobel prize in Chemistry

Marie Skłodowska-Curie (7 November 1867 – 4 July 1934) was a 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.

Marie Curie - Physicist & chemist; winner of 2 Nobel Prizes in 2 different areas. First woman professor at the University of Paris. Famous for the theory of radioactivity and the discovery of polonium and radium.

Scientists in Love: Pierre Curie (1859-1906) and Marie Sklodowska Curie (1867-1934) were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903 for discovery of the radioactive elements polonium and radium. Even today, the Curies provide inspiration for popular culture and textbook discussions of science. This photograph was circulated during the 1960s as publicity for an educational television program about the discovery of radium.

Marie Curie -- certainly not on this board for being "forgotten" but I didn't know she was rejected from a university!

Marie Curie ~ Polish physicist and chemist famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes[1]—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.[2] en.wikipedia.org/...

In 1898, Curie and her husband, Pierre, discovered radium. She spent the remainder of her life performing radiation research and studying radiation therapy. Her constant exposure to radiation led to her contracting leukemia and she died in 1934. Curie is the first and only person to receive two Nobel prizes in science in two different fields: chemistry and physics. She was also the first female professor at the University of Paris.
