2: Tragic Death of Science Genius By: Morgan Huckstorf Pierre died on April 19th 1906. He died when he was walking across a busy street. He was hit by a horse drawn carriage. It was pouring rain, he had is umbrella and he was reaching his arm out to stop the horses. He slipped in a puddle. The horses passed over him, but the wheels ran over his skull. He died instantly.
3: The science genius Pierre, had two children Irena, and Eve. He was married to Marie Currie. It was a big surprise to all of them that he died. They never thought that was going to happen to him. His wife Marie was the most upset. She didn't know if she could still do her research without him. She didn't try as hard and became unhealthy, like when she was in college. After awhile she began to realize that she had to do everything that Pierre was planning to do. She made a science lab for their radium and polonium research. Marie finally did everything that Pierre was planning to do. She was very proud even thought she wanted him to still be there with her. His work was carried out for him by his loving wife. Both of his children were proud of their father and knew that he lived a good life.
4: Dear Diary, Today I have been researching and so many more things. Pierre and I have been researching pitchblende and for 2 unknown elements. This is really exciting but I also feel bad because Pierre gave up his research on diamonds to help me. I don't know what to do because I feel bad that he is giving up everything he has done. He says that he really wants to help so I am not going to say anything. We are naming them right now and I get to name both. I named one polonium for Poland, and the other one I named Radium.
5: We are ordering tons of pitchblende. The more pitchblende we get, the bigger the radium and polonium is. Although it is a lot of work we are both up to it. We dream of a science lab made for researching polonium and radium. Someday this will happen and we will be able to use it everyday. We are putting all of the elements in jars and refining it so it is just itself with nothing else in it. When we were turning off the lights today, I turned around and realized that it glowed. Tomorrow I am going to find out why, but it is far to late at night to do work on it now. – Marie Curie
6: Memories- 1: Being a tutor- Marie and her sister both wanted to go to college in London but they did not have enough money. They had to tutor children to get enough money so they could afford to go. 2: Having enough money to send her sister to London for college- Marie came up with an idea to send her sister to college first because she was older. Marie would stay behind and send her money. | 3: Going to college- After years of saving, she finally had enough money to go. She studied so hard and got an A on every final exam.
7: 4: Meeting Pierre- This even was special in her life because it was love at first site. They were both scientists, and Pierre was very impressed by how smart Marie was. | 5: Wining a Nobel Prize- Marie and Pierre were studding pitchblende and they discovered two unknown elements. They named them themselves, one was polonium, for her country Poland, and the other one was radium.
8: Letter | Dear Father, Hello, I have just got to London and I am in the process of college. My house is quite small but it works for me. I am very interested in all my studies. I am positive that I will earn outstanding grades, for as much work I have done to get here. For my studies, I go to one class in the morning and then study until my next class. My next class is not until later at night. Then I get home and study until I fall asleep.
9: This works out very well because I have nothing else to do and I can really focus here with no interruptions. I also have lectures I go to and let me say that I learn a good amount of new things every time. I have to admit, I really like it here, but I still miss Poland dearly. I just received my grade for my final, and I got an A. I am very proud and I bet you are too. I miss you very much, I wish I could be closer to you and mom, but we | all know that the best schooling is here in London. Sincerely, Marya
