Glowing in the dark: Marie Sklodowska-Curie (1867-1934) was a French-Polish physicist and chemist, famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the only woman to win in two fields, and the only person to win in multiple sciences. Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Marie Curie and a bowlful of radium, designed and engraved by Jean Pheulpin, and issued by France on October 23, 1967 to commemorate the scientist's birth centenary, Scott No. 1195, Y&T No. 1533, plus a photo of Curie circa 1920.
