This week we are learning about Marie Curie.

Marie Curie was born in Warsaw on November 7, 1867. She left Warsaw, Poland when it was dominated by Russia and she moved to France where she continued her scientific studies. She discovered two new chemical elements – radium and polonium. She carried out the first research into the treatment of tumors with radiation, and she was the founder of the Curie Institutes, and sheis the only person who has ever won Nobel Prizes in both physics and chemistry.

Together with her husband, she was awarded half of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, for their study into the spontaneous radiation discovered by Becquerel, who was awarded the other half of the Prize. In 1911 she received a second Nobel Prize in Chemistry, in recognition of her work in radioactivity.
