Week 8 - Marie Skłodowska Curie
For the past three weeks, we've been exploring more contemporary but less famous human beings. This week, we are back with a more famous person that most people know at least by name, Marie Curie. Born Maria Salomea Skłodowska, she was the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize, first in physics in 1903 and…
What a great woman, she is such an inspiration!
I will not go on the negative side of radioactivity, I really want to focus and this great woman and what she did for the medicine :)
I also don't want to focus on the negative side of radioactivity because somehow it has nothing to do with Marie Curie. Scientific discoveries are always neutral, not bad or good. It's what people decides to do with them that can be good or bad, and definitely, she had nothing to do with the bad applications of radioactivity :-)
