Why a bio of Marie Curie? It’s elementary—she discovered two elements, won a Nobel Prize, and is the world’s most famous female scientist!
Born in Warsaw, Poland, on November 7, 1867, Marie Curie was forbidden to attend the male-only University of Warsaw, so she enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris to study physics and mathematics.
There she met a professor named Pierre Curie, and the two soon married, forming one of the most famous scientific partnerships in history. Together they discovered two elements and won a Nobel Prize in 1903. (Later Marie won another Nobel award for chemistry in 1911.)
She died in Savoy, France, on July 4, 1934, a victim of many years of exposure to toxic radiation.
