Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

Two Nobel Prizes?


Just saw this photo of 16 year-old Marie Curie at Kuriositas, and it immediately reminded me of the Challenge Accepted meme.

Marie Curie, two Nobel Prizes, first female professor at the University of Paris, giving away patent rights for the good of mankind, dying by radiation poisoning due to her strenuous work, but not before raising two kids, one of which would also come to receive another Nobel Prize.

Marie Curie, like a boss.

    It really annoys me that nobody even mentions that she was Polish and her full name is Marie Sk?odowska – Curie. She wasn’t French like many people think.

    She did include Polonium into the periodic table, that she did.
