“Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination.”
If there’s one person in history that this quote fits to a “T”, it’s Marie Curie.
You might not be familiar with Madame Curie, but if you’ve ever had an X-RAY taken you benefited from her amazing body of work.
In addition to helping develop the field of nuclear medicine, she was also a trail-blazer for women who are interested in the study of science.
In short, her many historic achievements literally helped create the world as we know it today.
