The message: Marie Curie and her husband Pierre received a joint Nobel Prize in Physics along with Henri Becquerel. Then in 1911 she became the first person to win two Nobel Prizes (the second was in Chemistry) for discovering two new radioactive elements: polonium (named after Marie's native Poland) and radium. In her acceptance speech, Marie shared the award with her husband, who in 1906 had been killed in an accident. 

In 1944, in honor of Marie and Pierre, the team discovering number 96 (Cm) on the Periodic Chart of Elements named the new element curium.
