    Marie Curie and her husdand (Peirre?) discovered radium. There was a third person involved also and I can't remember his name. This person went on to do research on uranium and begin the whole nuclear tech.
    Wilhelm Röntgen I believe discovered what is known as radiation. I think in Germany. I can't remember the year but it was soon before the Curies' discovery.
    They all died from massive exposure.

    I think we were the first to develop a working reactor.
