Marie Curie

Marie Curie was the first scientist to be awarded two Nobel Prizes: one in Physics (1903) and one in Chemistry (1911).

She also invented the word "radioactivity" based on the Latin word for ray (radio-, radi-, rad-).

She and her husband, Pierre, helped name and add two more elements to the Periodic Table: polonium and radium.
