Caption: Marie Curie (1867-1934), Polish-French physicist and chemist. Montage of images of the life and work of Curie, the first person honoured with two Nobel Prizes (Physics, 1903; Chemistry, 1911). She shared the 1903 Nobel with her husband Pierre (shown in several of the images) and physicist Henri Becquerel. She was the sole recipient of the 1911 Nobel. The montage includes her eldest daughter Irene, and concludes with a close-up of Marie at the 5th Solvay Conference (1927). Marie's achievements included a theory of radioactivity, techniques for isolating radioactive isotopes, and the discovery of two elements, polonium and radium. She founded the Curie Institutes in Paris and Warsaw, which remain major centres of medical research today. She died of leukaemia, almost certainly caused by her work with radioactive materials.
