Summary
This is a combo of biographies about the following well-known individuals:


Marie Curie - Marie Salomea Skodowska Curie was a Polish-born, naturalized-French researcher and chemist who originated radioactivity research. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Reward, the first and only woman to win it two times, and the only individual to win the Nobel Reward in 2 different clinical classifications.

Her first Nobel Reward was co-won by her spouse, Pierre Curie, making them the first married set to win the reward and developing the Curie family tradition of 5 Nobel Prizes. She was the first woman to be selected as a teacher at the University of Paris in 1906.


Nostradamus - Michel de Nostredame, referred to as Nostradamus in Latin, was a French astronomer, doctor, and presumed seer mostly known for his work Les Proph├ęties, a collection of 942 poetic quatrains supposedly predicting future events. In the year 1555, the book was first released.

Since the release of his Les Proph├ęties, Nostradamus has acquired a very large following of followers who, in addition to the majority of the well-known press, credit him with properly anticipating many essential historic events.


Alan Turing - Alan Mathison Turing was a mathematician, computer system researcher, scholar, cryptanalyst, thinker, and theoretical biologist from the U.K. With the Turing device, which can be considered a design of a general-purpose computer system, Turing had a substantial influence on the development of theoretical computer technology, offering a formalization of the ideas of algorithm and calculation. Turing is considered the creator of theoretical computer technology and AI. Turing was born in Maida Vale, London, and raised in the south of England.
