She is regarded by many, with eminently good reason, as one of the greatest scientists of the modern age. For further information, see: Eve Curie’s Madame Curie: A Biography.

      Understanding Marie Curie’s difficulties in looking for radium, Mrs. Meloney proposed a campaign in the United States, where 15 g of radium had been already produced.

She became seriously ill and died due to Radium poisoning. AFTER HER DEATH.
