Marie Curie was a storied chemical physicist.


Marie was born in 1867, in Warsaw, Poland. She graduated from Polish high school at fifteen, yet she was not allowed to attend a normal university. Her work in physics earned her a Nobel Prize in 1903, and her husband, Pierre Curie, was supposedly killed by a horse-drawn carriage. She won her second Noble Prize, now in chemistry, in 1911. She died in 1934 due to being around radiation.


She was very good at the sciences, and discovered two new elements, polonium and radium. Marie was one of the only female chemists at the time, and still is one of the more highly honored women ever.
