MARIE CURIE WAS THE GENIUS THAT STILL SAVES LIVES

Marie Curie was a genius that her discoveries still save thousands of lives, even today, decades after her death.

Her story might not be so so extraordinary if she was not the first person to win two Nobel Prizes and the first woman to win the prize as well.

Yet she is one of the most famous scientists whose pioneer work in radioactivity made history in the sciences of chemistry and physics.

I am one of those who think like Nobel, that humanity will draw more good than evil from new discoveries.

Marie Curie was from humble origins but she still was able to thrive as a scientist when she had the opportunity for education.

Her story only inspires us as women in science that wherever we come from we can become the scientists we dreamed of.

However, something that almost never is mentioned in her biographies is the difficulty for her work to be recognized.    

That is why is important for the stories of women in science to be told over and over again for everyone to hear.

Marie, like many others, did fight for the right to get credit for her own world. However, women out there remain unseen in the science community.

Although we achieve some progress for gender equality in science, there is still a huge gap for women to become scientists.

A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales.
