Mari cure was given loads of plutonium by the poland government and her research on this element lead to the discovery and radium where one night in one of her store room an abandoned box and plutonium was glowing and that led to the invention of radium.

Marie curie also invented polonium and thats how the country poland got its name.

Marie Curie 1867-1934
Dr. Marie Curie is known to the world as the scientist who discovered radioactive metals i.e. Radium & Polonium.
Marie Curie was a Polish physicist and chemist who lived between 1867-1934. Together with her husband, Pierre, she discovered two new elements (radium and polonium, two radioactive elements that they extracted chemically from pitchblende ore) and studied the x-rays they emitted. She found that the harmful properties of x-rays were able to kill tumors. By the end of World War I, Marie Curie was probably the most famous woman in the world. She had made a conscious decision, however, not to patent methods of processing radium or its medical applications.
Marie Curie was born November 7, 1867 in Poland and died on July 4, 1934. Her co-discovery with her husband Pierre Curie of the radioactive elements radium and polonium represents one of the best known stories in modern science for which they were recognized in 1901 with the Nobel Prize in Physics. In 1911, Marie Curie was honored with a second Nobel prize, this time in chemistry, to honor her for successfully isolating pure radium and determining radium's atomic weight.
As a child, Marie Curie amazed people with her great memory. She learned to read when she was only four years old. Her father was a professor of science and the instruments that he kept in a glass case fascinated Marie. She dreamed of becoming a scientist, but that would not be easy. Her family became very poor, and at the age of 18, Marie became a governess. She helped pay for her sister to study in Paris. Later, her sister helped Marie with her education. In 1891, Marie attended the Sorbonne University in Paris where she met and married Pierre Curie, a well-known physicist.

Marie cury was first 'who invent radium. She invent this, by million grams of tarcaol, & she get only 2 gram radium.

What did Benjamin franklin invent?

She invented it while he was doing an experment with radiom and she found radioactive element radiom.

First it was Henry Bequerel of France who discovered the phenomenon of radio activity. Then Madam Curie along with Pierre curie found uranium and polonium.

Madem curie got two noble prizes, madem curie family got 5 noble prizes. Madem curie-2, her husbend piere curie-1 in 1903 alog with his wife and another man. In 1906 piere curie died in road accident, madem curie daughter irene curie and her husbend got noble prize for artificial radioactivity.

Marie curie was a great invented and radioactive redhum.

Because he only founded radio active element while the proceesdoing that he comes to know.

She was awarded half of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, for their study into the spontaneous radiation discovered by Becquerel, who was awarded the other half of the Prize. In 1911 she received a second Nobel Prize, this time in Chemistry, in recognition of her work in radioactivity.

Madam curie awarded for noble prize for this radium invention.
