On this day in 1867—150 years ago—Marie Curie was born! The pioneering chemist, physicist, and first woman to win the Nobel Prize was featured prominently in our April 1924 story, Science Sees, Hears, Counts Atoms, and by that point, Curie had already won two Nobel prizes for her studies on radioactivity and for her discovery of radium polonium.

Audiences could then use the subsequent ticking noise to count the atoms as they were dispelled. Here’s to Marie Curie, quite possibly the greatest scientist who has ever lived.
