Marie Curie - thoughts for the mind
"We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained".|
"All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child. "
"I was taught that the way of progress was neither swift nor easy."
"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful."
Born 11/07/1867 in Warsaw, Poland
Died: 07/04/1934, Sancellemoz, France
She grew up as the 5th child of a poor but well-educated family in Warsaw.
She had an interest in Chemistry and Physics, but there were little opportunities in Poland for further study. Marya went to Paris, worked there hard to finance her studies at the Sorbonne. Pierre Curie was chief of the laboratory at the school of Physics and Chemistry. 1895 Pierre Curie asked Marya to marry him. Marie Curie and Pierre had two daughters.
Marie did intensive studies on radioactivity. In 1898, she discovered 2 new elements. One of which she named polonium after her home country. The other element she discovered was Radium with its remarkable impacts. In testing the product, Marie suffered burns from the rays. It was from this discovery of radium and its properties that the science of radiation was able to develop. It was found that radium had the power to burn away diseased cells in the body. Initially, this early form of radiotherapy was called ‘curietherapy. The Curries agreed to give away their secret freely; they did not wish to patent such a valuable element.
They got the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1903. Marie Curie was the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize.
Eight years later, 1911, Marie Curie was awarded a second Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of actinium and further studies on radium and polonium.
1914, Marie Curie has used most of her time helping to install X-ray machines in hospitals. By the end of the First World War, over a million soldiers had been examined by her X-ray units.
What a good mother she was: Her daughter Irène Joliot-Curie, born 1897 won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1935.
Marie Curie was known for her modest and frugal lifestyle. She asked any financial prizes to be given to research bodies rather than herself. During the First World War, she offered her Nobel Prizes to the French Treasury.
1934, Marie Curie died from Cancer, an unfortunate side effect of her own ground-breaking studies into radiation which were to help so many people.
