    About "Marie Curie"

    1. Marie Curie

      Marie Curie born Maria Sk odowska also known as Maria Sk odowska Curie was a physicist and chemist of Polish upbringing and, subsequently, French citizenship She was a pioneer in the field of radioactivity, the first and only person honored with Nobel Prizes in two different sciences, and the first female professor at the University of Paris.She was born in Warsaw, Vistulan Country, Russian Empire, and lived there until she was 24 In 1891 she followed her elder sister Bronis awa to study in Paris, where she obtained her higher degrees and conducted her scientific work She founded the Curie Institutes in Paris and Warsaw She was the wife of fellow Nobel laureate Pierre Curie and the mother of a third Nobel laureate, Ir ne Joliot Curie.While an actively loyal French citizen, she never lost her sense of Polish identity Madame Curie named the first new chemical element that she discovered 1898 polonium for her native country, and in 1932 she founded a Radium Institute now the Maria Sk odowska Curie Institute of Oncology in her home town, Warsaw, headed by her physician sister Bronis awa.

    1. Here presented is the doctoral thesis of Marie Sklodowska Curie who was awarded a 1903 Nobel Prize for Physics and later another Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1911. She is most recognised for her scientific work and research in radioactivityThis thesis was presented to the Faculté de Sciences de Paris in 1903.Her work can be downloaded here: booksshouldbefree/book


    2. Unquestionably the name Madame Curie is legendary. But how exactly does a thirtysomething, turn of the century scientist discover radium and polonium? Radioactive Substances is the PhD thesis of Marie Skłodowska Curie’s research at the Sorbonne. An intellectually and scientifically intimidating read, however it’s worth the endeavor. Mme Curie recounts each experiment and her finding with illuminating detail. Subsequent to reading this insightful thesis, one is able to grasp at just how grou [...]


    3. Ini bacaan yang sangat berbobot. Perlu pemahaman sains yang memadai untuk mengerti isinya (aku bukan tipe seperti itu, jadi aku lewatkan beberapa paragraf yang memusingkan). Tulisan ini membuka pemikiran bahwa sains adalah kerja keras, bukan sekedar pemikiran teoritis. Para ilmuwan besar yang disebut dalam buku teks memang benar-benar hebat. Sebabnya adalah mereka menggunakan metode dan pendekatan baru dalam berpikir. Memahami hal baru dan revolusioner bukan hal yang mudah. Elemen radioaktif dip [...]


    4. This was a very interesting book, very easy to follow (I'm not a science person didn't take any chemistry classes in HS or college). With the aid of the dictionary and internet, I was able to decipher any words or processes that weren't familiar. As for the book it was very interesting to learn a little more about radium and thorium along with the other radioactive materials and how the experiments were administered and the scientific finds.



    5. Probably a tough read for a non-scientist, because it's basically her thesis. Really interesting and really cool how she figured out that she had a new element on her hands.
