Marie Curie was the first person to be honored by two Nobel Prizes and she pioneered the use of radiation therapy for cancer patients. But she was also a mother, widowed young, who raised two extraordinary daughters alone: Irene, a Nobel Prize winning chemist in her own right, who played an important role in the development of the atomic bomb, and Eve, a highly regarded humanitarian and journalist, who fought alongside the French Resistance during WWII. As a woman fighting to succeed in a male dominated profession and a Polish immigrant caught in a xenophobic society, she had to find ways to support her research. Drawing on personal interviews with Curie's descendents, including personal letters released by Curie's only granddaughter, as well as revelatory new archives, this is a wholly new story about Marie Curie, and a family of women inextricably connected to the dawn of nuclear physics. The author continues the family story into the third generation, showing how the passion for science has endured with Curie's grandaughter Helene Langevin-Joliot6272ocn026718978book19930.06Pflaum, RosalyndMarie Curie and her daughter IrèneJuvenile worksBiographyPresents the life stories of Marie Curie, discoverer of radium, polonium, and natural radiation, and her daughter Irene Joliot-Curie, discoverer of artificial radiation+-+30649077353022ocn001367385book19610.12McKown, RobinShe lived for science; Irène Joliot-CurieStory of Irene Joliot-Curie and her contribution to science, her marriage to Frederic Joliot, and their work together to discover artificial radioactivity2102ocn056653087book20050.22Goldsmith, BarbaraObsessive genius : the inner world of Marie CurieHistoryBiographyDraws on diaries, letters, and family interviews to discuss the lesser-known achievements and scientific insights of the Nobel Prize-winning scientist, documenting how she was compromised by the prejudices of a male-dominated society+-+5212932475324712ocn747797138visu20090.66Reed, RosemarieOut from the shadowsThis fascinating biography relates the life and times of Irène Joliot-Curie, the eldest daughter of Marie and Pierre Curie. Although less well known than her parents, Irene and her husband, Frédéric, made a contribution to nuclear physics that was of equally ground-breaking significance. And like her parents, they were awarded a Nobel Prize. In 1934, Irène and her husband announced in a report to the French Academy of Sciences that they had created a radioactive atom which did not exist in nature. The bombardment of a simple sheet of aluminum with alpha rays had produced a phosphorus isotope which disintegrated just like natural radioactive elements. Until then radioactivity had been a phenomenon which scientists could not influence or manipulate, but which they were able to observe in certain heavy nuclei. The discovery of the Joliot-Curies marked the beginning of a new era in the relationship of man towards matter: it had become possible to artificially create new atoms and new sources of radioactive radiation. The discovery of artificial radioactivity was also an important step towards the discovery of nuclear fission, made in 1938, and the development of the atomic bomb, completed in 1944. The film makes use of the Curie family photos and home movies, as well as interviews, stock footage, and dramatizations524ocn024218432book19910.50Loriot, NoëlleIrène Joliot-CurieBiographyUne biographie sobre, mais qui s'appuie sur de nombreux témoignages et une bonne documentation492ocn022766969book19870.84Six, JulesLa découverte du neutronHistory231ocn746941077file20060.07Hicks, JenniferIrène Joliot-CurieJuvenile worksBiographyThe Nobel Foundation presents a biographical sketch of French chemist Irene Joliot-Curie (1897-1956).

Each vignette has a substantial reference list and in conjunction with vignettes 11 (bibliographies of Marie and Pierre Curie) and 12 (radium books 19001950) must cover almost every publication available on radium. There are numerous black and white photographs, diagrams and illustrations throughout the text.

Friedman, director of the New York Hall of Science, revisits the story of Einstein and the discovery of atomic energy. Friedman imparts two famous stories associated with Einstein told at different periods in history. The first story describes the lone genius who stuck to his guns and the second declares the unpredictability of science. If saintly Einstein couldn't stop his beautiful idea from becoming a weapon that could destroy civilization, what hope is there for the rest of us? Friedman goes on to say that this image of the dangers of science is still with us today. Friedman notes that it wasn't that Einstein discovered atomic energy, but it was atomic energy that gave Einstein hope that his equation could be proven correct. Friedman mentions some of the many scientists and authors who played a role in the discovery including: T. C. Chamberlin, Henri Becquerel, Marie Curie, Frederick Soddy, H. G. Wells, Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, Otto Frisch, John Cockcroft, Enrico Fermi, Irene Curie, Frederick Jolio Curie, Robert Heinlein, and Leo Szilard. Friedman takes questions from the audience that include: How was the atom split? What lessons can be learned from this story that could be applied to global warming? What were Einstein's feelings about being associated with atomic energy? How do we know how old the sun is? and What has happened with cold fusion?21ocn027128134book19361.00M. [Monsieur] and Mme.
