Marie Curie was honored for her work in both Physics & Chemistry and her pioneering research in radioactivity changed history. Two Nobel prizes is just anecdotic

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."

Marie Curie died 80 years ago today from leukaemia caused by her research. During World War 1 she helped to equip ambulances with x-ray equipment, which she herself drove to the front lines. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to win in two fields, and the only person to win in multiple sciences. ‪#‎alwaysremembered‬ ‪#‎OnThisDay‬

Marie Curie, incredible scientist. She discovered radium and won the nobel prize (her husband was credited too, after all, they could never give one to just a woman).

Marie Curie's experimental notebook - which after almost a hundred years, is still incredibly radioactive! All of her notes and books can only be handled safely using radiation gear and are stored in lead lined boxes.
