Week 28: Marie Curie

“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.”

—Marie Curie

A physicist and pioneer in the field of radioactivity, the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes and the first female professor at the University of Paris.
