1911: Marie Curie becomes the first person to be awarded a second Nobel Prize, accepting the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in Stockholm, Sweden, for isolating radium by electrolyzing molten radium chloride. Her first prize came in 1903 and was a collaborative effort with her husband, Pierre Curie, and Henri Becquerel in Physics for her contributions in the discovery of radium and polonium.
