Marie Curie and her daughter, Irene, put X-rays in cars. They use it to find bulletts lodged inside wounded soldiers.

The Curies both got sick from the radiation that the two elements gave out, but that didn't stop them from working. Later Pierre died, but didn't die from the radiations. He died from getting hit by a wagon in the Parris streets. It was a tragic loss but didn't stop Marrie from continuing to work on their experiments.

Marie Curie was one of the most famous scientist in the world. In 1921, President Warren G. Harding, using money collected by American women, bought a gram of radium and gave it to Curie so she can continue her research on radium.

On July 4, Marie died, from leukemia, that was probably caused by her exposure to radiation. In 1934 the ashes of Marie Curie were buried in the Pantheon in Parris, becoming the first women to receive such an honor
