"In 1995, Marie and Pierre Curie were reburied in the Pantheon-the Paris mausoleum reserved for France's most revered dead- on the order of French President Mitterand"

"She is arguably the first women to make such a significant contribution to science."

"Marie Curie's life as a scientist was one which flourished because of her ability to observe, deduce and predict."

Marie Curie or Maria Sklodowska was the first women to win a Nobel Prize and the only women to win the award in two different fields (Physics and Chemistry). Curie was a French physicist who admired the work of Henri Becquerel. Becquerel was also a French physicist, he discovered that uranium casts off rays. Curie took Becquerel's work into further investigation and that lead her to her famous discovery which is that rays remained constant, no matter the condition or form of the uranium. That discovery lead to the creation of the field of atomic physics, Curie described it as radioactivity. Curie's husband (Pierre, also a French physicist) had put his work aside to help Curie explore radioactivity and together they made many new discoveries. (http://www.biography.com/people/marie-curie-9263538#final-days-and-legacy) All the years working on radioactivity was bad for Curie's health. In 1934 Curie went to Passy, France to rest and get healthier but she past away on July fourth 1934. She died of aplastic anemia, which can be caused by lots of exposure to radiation. Even though Marie Curie had past away her legacy still went on, to this day she is still well known in the science world. In 1995, Curie and her husband's remains were placed in the Panthéon in Paris, the resting place of France's greatest minds. Curie became the first and only woman to be laid to rest there. Today several education, research institutes, and medical centers are named in her honor.(http://www.biography.com/people/marie-curie-9263538#final-days-and-legacy)

Biography

This shows that Curie was also recognized by the president. Not many people from the science world are recognized in the government. By having Marie Curie on the 20 dollar bill that could change.

This shows that she made a big impact in the science world which is worldwide. She made a worldwide impact rather than a impact that is only recognized in one country like many of the men in the U.S. currency.

Marie Curie not only did she have those abilities like many American leaders, but was also intelligent and made a huge impact in the world by finding two new elements with her husband.
