The life and loves of Marie Curie, the pioneering scientist - a woman who thrived in its highest ranks at a time almost alone as a representative of her gender - and winner of Nobel prizes in both physics and chemistry is vividly explored in an original audiobook production created especially for young audiences. Laura Brattan performs with the tone of a kindly and accessible teacher as she recounts the great researcher’s history and accomplishments. This selection is from theFamous People in History, Vol. 2 collection.
This is a story from the Famous People in History II collection.
Here are the life stories of nine famous people who have left their mark upon the world. There are men of action such as Alexander the Great and George Washington, and a woman, Joan of Arc, who inspired a nation. There are scientists whose voyages of discovery took place in laboratories: Isaac Newton, Louis Pasteur, and Marie Curie. Imagination is the fuel of the artist. The paintings of Leonardo da Vinci and the symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven, though centuries old, still affect us today. And finally, there is the story of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who gained freedom for his country while at the same time promoting the idea of peace and non-violence. These men and women were important in their time and, even in our computer age, show what individuals with ideals and energy can achieve.
