In 1898, Marie and Pierre Curie discovered two new elements, polonium and radium. These discoveries were important, but even more important was their investigation of the radioactivity that these two elements demonstrated. This book traces the scientists' stories, covering matters as varied as Pierre's early experiments in magnetism and Marie's work in World War I. Young readers will be inspired by the couple's many accomplishments.
