Wait, what?

Marie Curie: A Super Genius, Super Selfless, Super Hard Working, Super Radioactive Historical Superhero [Video]

she blinded me with science

SciShow does their best to explain why Marie Curie is basically the best, for breaking gender barriers, discovering incredibly important science, knowingly studying radiation’s lifesaving uses as the research destroyed her own health, and raising two kids mostly singlehandedly. If you’d like to hear about some more lady scientists who were also basically the best, refer, as always, to this xkcd comic.

(Thanks, Tipster Abigail!)
