Marie Curie: The Polonium Princess

Two-time Nobel prize winner Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel prize for her work on radioactivity. Battling sexism and her own ill health, she rose to become one of the most famous scientists in human history. This is her story.

Thank you Dreamweaver, that was a lovely story on Madam Curie.
I wonder how many brilliant minds are LOST, because of sexism. Sad thing is, that it's still happening. :teary
