Marie Curie: Mother of Modern Physics (Sterling Biographies Series) by Janice Borzendowski

Nearly seventy years after her death, Marie Curie continues to be one of the most famous female scientists. Despite being at a disadvantage compared to her male counterparts in the late nineteenth century, Marie changed not only the course of science, but also history itself. Marie, along with her husband, Pierre, discovered two new chemical elements - polonium and radium. These discoveries opened up the field of radioactive science. In recognition of their accomplishment, Pierre and Marie received a Nobel Prize - she was the first woman ever awarded this honor. Marie Curie made a historic impact on science and the world - and continues to inspire generations of young people.
