Marie Curie

Some of the documents were still so radioactive at that point that they had to undergo two years of decontamination before they could be handled.

Marie Skłodowska Curie November 1867 – 4 July 1934, born Maria Salomea Skłodowska , was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity.




She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win twice, the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences, and was part of the Curie family legacy of five Nobel Prizes.
