However, Maria did not let her grades drop, so she studied continuously. She thought that studying was a way of distracting herself from her mother and sister's death.
November 1903, Marie and Pierre wins half of a Nobel Prize in Physics for the outstanding research of radiation. The other half was given to Antoine Henri Becquerel, who discovered radium.

Inspiration to All
Marie Curie inspired many women, and even men to accomplish their goal in science or in any field now and when she was alive.
Back then, there were not many women working with science, but now, colleges are filled with many women.
