Marie Curie, née Sklodowska. A largely penniless student who worked as a governess & tutor while pursuing her dream of becoming a physicist (an unheard of occupation for a woman in the nineteenth century) she eventually found her way to Paris in 1891 where she found work at the laboratory of physicist Gabriel Lippman while continuing her studies at the Sorbonne. She was the 1st woman to win the Nobel Prize, and won a 2nd time, again a 1st.
What Great Scientists Did When They Weren’t Doing Science (infograph). Marie Curie was a simply astounding woman. She won the Nobel prize two times. The first time she won it in physics, in 1903, and the second time in chemistry, in 1911. But of course, there was much more to her life than just work. She had a husband and children….& she was also an avid long-distance cyclist. Get to know some of the interesting quirks behind the famous faces in science. Image via Premier Institute
