Marie Curie – the legend

It would seem unbelievable to say that radioactive radiation is emitted from the body even years after death. But Marie Curie, a scientific genius, shocked scientists posthumously with her life as a gift.

Sixty years after the remains of Marie Curie, who died in 1934, were exhumed in 1995, radioactive radiation was still intense. If so much radiation was to be emitted from his body, one can only imagine how long they would have struggled with these elements for research during her lifetime.
