Marie Curie (1867-1934) Polish scientist, was born in Warsaw, in November 7th 1867, and died in France, in 4th July 1934. Her single name was Maria Sklodowska. In Paris, Marie graduated in Mathematical and Physical Sciences. She got married in 1835 with the French physicist Pierre Curie . In 1896, H. Becquerel suggested the theme of her Ph.D. thesis the study of natural radiation from uranium salts. During her work, the Curie couple discovered and isolated a new radioactive element named polonium in honor to Marie's home land. A few months later, they were able to isolate radium for the first time. Together with Becquerel , she obtained the Nobel Prize of Physics in 1903 . Founded the Radium Institute of Paris , being the main responsible until her death. In 1911 she was awarded the Nobel Prize of Chemistry Soon after her death, the book Radioactivité was published, combining her work of several years. This book is still the basis of studies on classical radioactivity.

    Marie Sklodowska Curie (1867–1934) was the first person ever to receive two Nobel Prizes: the first in 1903 in physics, shared with her husband Pierre and Henri Becquerel for the discovery of the phenomenon of radioactivity; and the second in 1911 in chemistry for the discovery of the radioactive elements polonium and radium. The daughter of impoverished Polish schoolteachers, Marie worked as a governess in Poland to support her older sister in Paris, whom she eventually joined. Already entranced with chemistry, Marie took advanced scientific degrees at the Sorbonne, where she met and married Pierre Curie, a physicist who had achieved fame for his work on the piezoelectric effect. For her thesis she chose to work in a field just opened up by Wilhelm Roentgen's discovery of X-rays and Becquerel's observation of the mysterious power of samples of uranium salts to expose photographic film. She soon convinced her husband to join in the endeavor of isolating the "radioactive" substance—a word she coined. In 1898, after laboriously isolating various substances by successive chemical reactions and crystallizations of the products, which they then tested for their ability to ionize air, the Curies announced the discovery of polonium, and then of radium salts weighing about 0.1 gram that had been derived from tons of uranium ore. After Pierre's death in 1906 in a streetcar accident, Marie achieved their objective of producing a pure specimen of radium.

In his reply Pierre made clear that a nobel Prize for research in radioactivity Somestrings were pulled, and a nomination of marie curie in 1902 was validated
Recognition and Disappointment (1903-1905) The Nobel Prize and Its Aftermath MARIE WAS NOT REALLY NOMINATED for her first Nobel Prize. From the inception of the award in 1901, the Nobel Prizes have been made after a lengthy evaluation of the merits of nominees. In 1903 the French Academy of Sciences nominated Henri Becquerel and Pierre but not Marie Curie as candidates for the physics prize. If not for the intervention of a member of the nominating committee, Swedish mathematician Magnus Goesta Mittag-Leffler, Marie might have been denied recognition for her work. But Mittag-Leffler, an advocate of women scientists, wrote Pierre advising him of the situation. In his reply Pierre made clear that a Nobel Prize for research in radioactivity that failed to acknowledge Marie's pivotal role would be a travesty. Some strings were pulled, and a nomination of Marie Curie in 1902 was validated for 1903. In December 1903, Becquerel and both Curies were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics. The Curies' citation was carefully worded to avoid specific mention of their discovery of polonium and radium. Chemists on the nominating committee had insisted that the Curies might in the future deserve a Nobel Prize for Chemistry for their discovery of those elements. And there remained some doubts about the elements, which had been isolated only in invisibly small amounts. Thus their physics prize mentioned only their collaborative work on Becquerel rays.

Marie Curie
Marie Curie, along with her husband Pierre Curie, discovered the chemical elements radium and polonium. The Curies' study of radioactive elements contributed to the understanding of atoms on which modern nuclear physics is based. Originally named Marja Sklodowska, Marie Curie was born in Warsaw on November 7, 1867. In 1891 she went to Paris (where she changed her name to Marie) and enrolled in the Sorbonne. Two years later, she passed the examination for her degree in physics, ranking in first place. She met Pierre Curie in 1894, and they married in 1895. Marie Curie was interested in the recent discoveries of radiation. Wilhelm Roentgen had discovered X-rays in 1895, and in 1896, Becquerel had discovered that the element uranium gives off similar invisible radiations. Curie began studying uranium radiations, and, using piezoelectric techniques devised by her husband, carefully measured the radiations in pitchblende, an ore containing uranium. When she found that the radiations from the ore were more intense than those from uranium itself, she realized that unknown elements, even more radioactive than uranium, must be present. Marie Curie was the first to use the term radioactive to describe elements that give off radiations as their nuclei break down. Pierre Curie ended his own work on magnetism to join his wife's research, and in 1898 the Curies announced their discovery of two new elements: polonium (named by Marie in honor of Poland) and radium. During the next four years, the Curies, working in a leaky wooden shed, processed a ton of pitchblende, laboriously isolating from it a fraction of a gram of radium. They shared the 1903 Nobel Prize in physics with Becquerel for the discovery of radioactive elements. Marie Curie was the first female recipient of a Nobel Prize.

    Marie Curie biography
    Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize. She was renowned for her work with radioactivity, and it was that work that would eventually end her life. She was born Maria Sklodowska in Warsaw, Poland on November 7, 1867. She was the fifth and last child of piano player and teacher Bronsilawa Boguska and mathematics and physics professor, Wladyslaw Sklodowski. Her childhood nickname was Manya. Her father was a freethinker and her mother was a Catholic. bodyOffer(23056) Her family valued education, and so she began her education early. She possessed a remarkable memory. She graduated from secondary school when she was sixteen, receiving a gold medal for her work. Unfortunately her father made some bad investments and she had to go to work at a young age as a teacher, postponing the continuance of her own education. At the age of 18 she became a governess, and put her sister, Bronia, through school with the agreement that Bronia would return the favor- and she did. In 1891 at the age of 24, Sklodowska went to Paris to study mathematics, physics and chemistry at the Sorbonne. She studied fervently, and subsisted almost entirely on bread, butter and tea. During her years there she changed the spelling of her name to the French version, Marie.

After the sudden accidental death of Pierre Curie, Marie Curie managed to raise her two small daughters Irene and Eve, and to continue an active career in experimental radioactivity opening a new era in medical research and treatment. Her two daughters marked the history as well. Irene became a scientist and was awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1935 (

Pierre Curie's early work dealt with crystallography and with the effects of temperature on magnetism; he discovered (1883) and, with his brother Jacques Curie, investigated piezoelectricity (a form of electric polarity) in crystals. Marie Sklodowska's interest in science was stimulated by her father, a professor of physics in Warsaw. In 1891 she went to Paris to continue her studies at the Sorbonne. In 1895 she married Pierre Curie and engaged in independent research in his laboratory at the municipal school of physics and chemistry where Pierre was director of laboratories (from 1882) and professor (from 1895).

    polonium and radium , but it took four more years of processing tons of ore under oppressive conditions to isolate enough of each element to determine its chemical properties. For their work on radioactivity, the Curies were awarded the 1903 Nobel Prize in physics. Tragically, Pierre was killed three years later in an accident while crossing a street in a rainstorm. Pierre's teaching position at the Sorbonne was given to Marie. Never before had a woman taught there in its 650 year history! Her first lecture began with the very sentence her husband had used to finish his last. In his honor, the 1910 Radiology Congress chose the curie as the basic unit of radioactivity; the quantity of radon in equilibrium with one gram of radium (current definition: 1Ci = 3.7 x 10 dps). A year later, Marie was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry for her discoveries of radium and polonium, thus becoming the first person to receive two Nobel Prizes. For the remainder of her life she tirelessly investigated and promoted the use of radium as a treatment for cancer. Marie Curie died July 4, 1934, overtaken by pernicious anemia no doubt caused by years of overwork and radiation exposure.

    Muchas veces primera Sobre Marya Sklodowska, brillante física e incansable investigadora, el científico Albert Einstein dijo alguna vez: "De todos las personas célebres que conozco, ella es una de las pocas a quien la fama nunca corrompió". Por eso se resistió siempre a escribir una autobiografía. "Mi vida es demasiado simple. Nací en Varsovia en una familia de maestros, me casé con Pierre Curie, tuve con él dos hijas, y he desarrollado mi trabajo en Francia. Eso es todo". Poco después del nacimiento de su primera hija, Marie decidió obtener un doctorado y dedicó su tesis al estudio de unos "rayos misteriosos" que irradiaba el uranio, un fenómeno descrito en 1896 por el científico Henri Becquerel.

    Marie Curie : du hangar au Nobel! Elle a remporté deux prix Nobel, mais surtout, Marie Curie a fait des découvertes qui ont changé la science à tout jamais... Étrange, cette trace lumineuse que laisse un sel d’uranium déposé sur une plaque photographique... Maria Sklodowska, mieux connue sous le nom de Marie Curie (1867-1934), veut comprendre. Avec son mari Pierre, elle étudie la mystérieuse énergie émise par l’uranium. Dans son petit laboratoire, elle découvre d’autres substances ayant les mêmes propriétés. En passant, ce laboratoire ressemblait beaucoup plus à un hangar qu’à un vrai centre de recherche. Ceux qui s’y sont aventurés en plein hiver en sont ressortis les orteils gelés ! Pas frileux, Marie et Pierre y travaillent quand même jour et nuit. Résultat ? La découverte de deux nouveaux éléments « radioactifs » (c’est Marie Curie elle-même qui a inventé ce mot) : le polonium et le radium. Les efforts de Marie et Pierre seront récompensés en 1903 : on leur remet le prix Nobel de physique. Une découverte suffisamment importante pour que Pierre soit admis à l’Académie des sciences... mais pas Marie ! Les scientifiques de l’époque étaient très sexistes ! Tant pis : en 1906, Marie Curie reçoit le prix Nobel de chimie pour ses travaux plus poussés sur le radium. Elle devient la première personne à obtenir deux prix Nobel. Penses-y : sans l’acharnement de Marie Curie, on ne connaîtrait peut-être pas grand-chose sur la radioactivité ! Grâce aux rayonnements radioactifs, on peut aujourd’hui traiter plusieurs cancers, connaître l’âge des roches très anciennes, effectuer des expériences en génétique... et fabriquer des bombes nucléaires. Ça, c’est l’envers de la médaille...
