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: The winner of two Nobel Prizes for her research in radiation and for discovering radium. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne. Marie Curie teaches us that we can break down barriers.
Madame Marie Curie. The only person to hold two Nobel Prizes is a woman. Marie Curie was honored for her work in both Physics & Chemistry and her pioneering research in radioactivity changed history. She has always been a HERO of mine!
