Marie Curie ~ "Marie Skłodowska-Curie (7 November 1867 – 4 July 1934) was a French-Polish physicist and chemist famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes – in physics and chemistry. She was the first female professor at the University of Paris, and in 1995 became the first woman to be entombed on her own merits in the Panthéon in Paris."

Marie Curie, discoverer of Polonium and Actinium, and winner of two Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry, was one of the most influential women in science. Her studies into the properties of radium led to the invention of x-ray machines and radiotherapy. She dies of cancer due to the effects of her discoveries and was considered a martyr in her field. -Laura K.  #OneBraveThing
