Marie Curie's 144th Birthday Google Doodle

Celebrate the 144th birthday of pioneering physicist and chemist Marie Curie with today's Google Doodle.
Born Marie Sklodowska in Warsaw, Poland, Marie moved to Paris where she conducted research that earned her two Nobel Prizes, one in physics in 1903 and the other in chemistry in 1911. She coined the term radioactivity and discovered two new elements, polonium and radium.
