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."
Pictured is Marie Curie's experimental notebook - which after almost a hundred years, is still incredibly radioactive! All of her notes and books can only be handled safely using radiation gear and are stored in lead lined boxes._jon the radiographer
