BWIS Lecture

"Marie Curie's Life and Work — CANCELED — To be Rescheduled"

Presented by Edward Sierra, BNL Quality Management Office

Thursday, March 22, 2018, 4:00 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Edward Sierra will provide a talk on Marie Curie, an extraordinary scientist, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and still the only one awarded with two Nobel Prizes. Ed's interest in the early pioneers of radioactivity was piqued by the discussions he had many years ago with the renowned Dr. Maurice Goldhaber, the prominent physicist and a former Laboratory Director at Brookhaven National Laboratory. He learned that Goldhaber was a student under Sir James Chadwick at the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University and that he attended a graduate course in Berlin given by Dr. Lise Meitner. Ed's research on Meitner led to an interest in Marie Curie. Her work and life is the topic of this talk.
