Book Description
Marie Curie Remains the only woman to win two Nobel Prizes the first in 1903 for the discovery of radioactivity and the second in 1911 for the discovery of radium and polonium. Her discovery of radium opened the door to the exploration of the atom. What is even more remarkable is that the world had to wait twenty years for another woman to win the Nobel Prize, awarded to Marie's daughter, Irene Joliot-Curie, who received it for discovering artificial radioactivity. In turn, Irene's daughter, Helene Langevin-joliot, helped create the First atomic pile in France. The legacy of Marie Curie, her daughter and granddaughter, who between them released and granddaughter, who between them released the radioactivity that has transformed our world, makes for a fascinating story.
