Marie Sklodowska-Curie, who discovered the elements radium and polonium, and coined the term “Radioactivity,” is the only person in history to ever be awarded the Nobel Prize in two different scientific disciplines. She is truly a glowing beacon of scientific achievement. And when I say “glowing,” I do not mean it figuratively. She was exposed to A LOT of radiation.
