Through words and her crafted illustrations, artist and journalist Lauren Redniss tells the story of Marie Curie, n©♭e Marya Sklodowska, and her working and romantic relationship with Pierre Curie, including their discovery of two new scientific elements with startling properties-as well as the tragic car accident that killed Pierre, Marie's two Nobel Prizes, and her scandalous affair with a married scientist. And Radioactive looks beyond the contours of Marie's life, surveying the changes wrought by the Curies' discoveries-nuclear weapons, radiation in medical treatment, and nuclear energy as a possible energy source
