Marie Curie - The Pioneer, the Nobel Laureate

Author(s): Richard Gunderman

Biography & Memoir

When Marie Curie and her husband, Pierre, discovered the atomic nature of radioactivity, and isolated polonium and radium, they revolutionized modern science. Her work not only contributed to our understanding of the structure of the atom, but also laid the foundation for modern medical innovations such as X-rays and radiotherapy. This illustrated biography details Marie's tumultuous personal life at a time of social upheaval, and her struggle to gain recognition in an era when women scientists were almost unknown.
