Happy birthday Marie Skłodowska-Curie

Happy birthday Marie Skłodowska-Curie! A French-Polish physicist and chemist, famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity, she was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to win in two fields, and the only person to win in multiple sciences. She was also the first female professor at the University of Paris (La Sorbonne), and in 1995 became the first woman to be entombed on her own merits in the Panthéon in Paris. Just a remarkable human being all around! Also see:
