Marie Curie  Nobel Prizes

Marie Curie made history in 1903 when she shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with her husband, Pierre, and physicist Henri Becquerel for their work on radioactivity, being the first woman to do so. Her second Nobel Prize in chemistry, which she received in 1911, was even more historic: she became the first person to win the prize twice. She is also the first person in history to have received Nobel Prizes in two distinct fields.
