The first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person to win two Nobel Prizes and the first independent woman to be entombed in Paris’s famous Panthéon, Marie Skłodowska-Curie was born in Warsaw, Poland, on this day in 1867.

Over her career she discovered two elements, radium and polonium, pioneered the study of the atom, founded a science dynasty and drove ambulances among the trenches of World War I. Remember this Franco-Polish citizen of the world with a Champs-Elysées, a cognac creation named for her adopted home, Paris.
