Learn about the Curies' visionary scientific ethics, how Marie broke the academic glass ceiling in France, and how she opened the doors of science to women in her own laboratory and beyond. Find out about the third, fourth, and fifth Nobel Prize connections. Understand how it is that radioactivity can both cause cancer and cure it. And explore the effects of nuclear technology that we, in turn, rely on and need to be wary of today.
