Marie Curie was born yesterday in 1867.

This bust by Angela Bishop is one of the two commissioned in 1990 by the RSC's Radiochemistry Group. You can find it in the RSC Library at Burlington House, London.

The second one is presented every two years to the winner of the Radiochemistry Group's Young Researchers' Meeting.

Watch the video of the public lecture "The three lives of Marie Curie" by Dr Serge Plattard http://www.thereaction.net/events/y2011/marie_curie.aspx
