Marie Curie was a scientist who truly sacrificed herself for her work. Though she could have become wealthy by selling her research and discoveries, she preferred to live and work in poverty so that her discoveries could benefit humankind. Curie is best known for her groundbreaking work in the field of radioactivity and X-ray technology. She was the first person to isolate both polonium and radium, and one of only a few scientists to win 2 Nobel prizes.
