Learn about the life and work of Marie Curie, who risked her life for science. The winner of not one, but two, Nobel Prizes for Physics and Chemistry, Marie Curie discovered two elements, radium and polonium, which cannot be broken down any further by chemical means. Her work was her salvation, leading her from bouts of depression and fueling her to succeed in a world of "no girls allowed." Marie married Pierre Curie, a brilliant scientist, who gave up his research to help her move forward with hers (which was more ground-breaking). Despite the fact that Marie and her husband both died from overexposure to radiation, she would not have considered herself a martyr to science.
