      Marie Sklodowska Curie Marie Curie is considered the most famous of all women scientists. She was the only woman ever to win two Nobel Prizes. Prohibited from higher education in her native Poland (then controlled by Russia), she moved to Paris in 1891 and studied at the Sorbonne. In 1903 her discovery of radioactivity earned her the Nobel Prize in physics. In 1911, she won it for chemistry.

    Madame Marie Skłodowska-Curie 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.

    Marie Curie, inventor of the X Ray, can you imagine life without her invention?

    "I have frequently been questioned, especially by women, of how I could reconcile family life with a scientific career. Well, it has not been easy." -Marie Curie

With Enrico Fermi, he is called "Father of the Atomic Bomb" for his role in the Manhattan Project, World War II Project that developed the first nuclear weapons. First atomic bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945, Trinity test in New Mexico; He remarked later that it brought to mind words from Bhagavad Gita: "Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

    I don't admire this man for his brain like most do but I can appreciate that he is extremely intelligent. What I do admire him for is that he has lived with Lou Gehrig's disease for almost 50 years.~Andy

    Dorothy Hodgkin 1910-1994 Awarded the Nobel prize for chemistry Dorothy Hodgkin work on critical discoveries of the structure of both penicillin and later insulin. These discoveries led to significant improvements in health care. An outstanding chemist Dorothy also devoted a large section of her life to the peace movement and promoting nuclear disarmament.

    Whenever I hear a someone make a crack about women and science or something like that, I like to imagine the ghost of someone like Rita might materialize long enough to smack the ever-loving heck out of them. How many examples of strong, independent and intelligent women do you need? Geeze.

    Saint Elmo Brady (December 22, 1884 - December 25, 1966) was the first African American to obtain a Ph.D. degree in chemistry in the United States, which he earned in 1916 from the University of Illinois. He taught at Tuskegee, Fisk, Howard and Tougaloo, and was the first African American admitted to Phi Lambda Upsilon, the chemistry honor society. #TodayInBlackHistory
