Google Doodle Honors Groundbreaking Scientist Marie Curie [VIDEO]


To celebrate the 144th anniversary of  pioneering scientist Marie Curie’s birth, Google dedicated its latest creative doodle to her — giving the famed researcher a spot among other great “doodled” minds like Thomas Edison, “father of genetics” Gregor Mendel and “Vitamin C” scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi.

France and Poland already declared 2011 as the Year of Marie Curie in honor of the legendary scientist who was the first woman ever to win the Nobel and, with her husband Pierre, did pioneering work in radioactivity, discovering the elements radium and polonium, which she named for her native Poland.

Watch a video about the doodle below, as well as a clip featuring some of Curie’s best-known quotes:
