Unique Examples of Families That Inspire You

Pierre and Marie Curie

Great minds.Iconic figures.

Their invention of Radium and X-ray had a very deep impact on modern civilisation.

Madame Curie continued with the research after the accidental death of her husband with a dedication that stands out as an example in the field of scientific experimentation.Husband and wife are two of most respected Nobel prize winners in Science.

She stands tall in our esteem because of her refusal to patent her discovery. The height she reached inspite of her financially difficulties of the earlier years is inspiring.

Also inspring are the children of Curies. The elder daughter ,Irene , was another Nobel prize winner of the family. The younger one ,Eve, was an accomplished writer.
