Marie Curie

The Pioneer, the Nobel Laureate, the Discoverer of Radioactivity

Pioneers of Science

Marie Curie is the only woman in history to win the Nobel Prize in two fields—physics and chemistry. Her amazing story and groundbreaking work are the subjects of this essential volume, notable for incorporating personal documents, photographs, and other primary sources to support the details of Curie's life. Readers will recognize the heroism of Curie in the face of great challenges. For example, women in Poland during Curie's school years could not obtain a university degree—she had to travel to France to study. They will also appreciate how Curie's work in X-ray technology was applied to medicine, saving the lives of millions.
