The official account of the Nobel Prizes shared photos from the notebook in which she took notes during her laboratory work on the occasion of the death anniversary of Marie Skłodowska Curie, a Polish-French scientist who conducted research in the field of radioactivity and won the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry as a result of her research.

"Marie Curie died of aplastic anemia on July 4, 1934 as a result of years of exposure to radiation during her studies. The laboratory notebook she kept between 1899 and 1902 is still radioactive today and will remain so for 1500 years."

ABOUT MARIE CURIE

After first discovering the radioactive elements polonium and radium, Marie Curie, who changed the world with her scientific work in the field of radioactivity, successfully produced radium as a pure metal in 1910, proving beyond doubt the existence of the new element.

Curie's winning two Nobel Prizes is considered one of the turning points in the history of science.  Curie was awarded the prize in physics in 1903 and in chemistry in 1911.
