The story of Marie and Pierre Curie is one of love, scientific partnership, and one of the most important discoveries of the 20th century. Their discovery of radioactivity won them the Nobel Prize, but it was also part of a series of findings that led to the creation of the atomic bomb. Artist and author Lauren Redniss talks about her new book, Radioactive, an illustrated biography of the pair and a look at their complicated legacy. See a slideshow of images from the book.
