    "A touching three-dimensional portrait of the Polish-born scientist and two-time Nobel Prize winner" (Kirkus) Madame Curie, the discoverer of radium and radioactivityOne hundred years ago, Marie Curie discovered radioactivity, for which she won the Nobel Prize in physics. In she won an unprecedented second Nobel Prize, this time in chemistry, for isolating new radioactive elements.3/5(3). Though Curie is now known for winning the Nobel Prize for her discovery of radium, the film shows that at first she wasn't nominated for it. Instead, the French Academy of Sciences nominated Henri Becquerel and her husband Pierre Curie as candidates for the Physics prize in Author: Lakshana Palat.

    Pierre & Marie Curie. By the time he met Marie Sklodowska, Pierre Curie had already established an impressive reputation. In , he and his brother Jacques had discovered piezoelectricity whereby physical pressure applied to a crystal resulted in the creation of an electric potential.   La biographie émouvante que Marie Curie consacre à Pierre est complètée d'une étude rédigée par leur fille, Irène Joliot-Curie, elle-même prix Nobel, qui porte sur les «Carnets de laboratoire de la découverte du polonium et du radium» et reconstitue ces recherches fertiles en coups de :

      This image released by Amazon shows Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie in a scene from “Radioactive.” (Amazon via AP) It was dirty work, Marie and Pierre Curie’s discovery of radium and polonium. To investigate uranium at their Paris laboratory, Marie acquired several tons of pitchblende, a black ore, and the industrial waste product left over.   Marie was joined by her physicist husband Pierre to study uraninite, then known as pitchblende, a uranium-rich mineral and ore. The pair removed uranium and were left with a radioactive material they determined should be two new elements, radium and polonium. They first discovered polonium, named for Marie’s homeland Poland, in July

After the discovery of Radioactivity, Marie discovered Radium and Polonium, two radioactive substances. Polonium was named after Poland, Marie’s home country.
