Sir Isaac Newton
popular name: Sir Isaac Newton
date_of_death: March 28, 1727
cause_of_death: Experienced severe pain in his abdomen and blacked out, never regained consciousness, and died the next day
best_know_for: Isaac Newton was an English mathematician, physicist, astronomer, and theologian, is considered one of the great figures in the history of math and science. His ideas about motion and gravity are fundamental to the science of physics and other fields. He discovered calculus, proposed new theory of light and color, advanced early modern chemistry, and invented the reflecting telescope. His highly influential books include "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy) on classical mechanics, "Opticks" on theories of light.
popular name: Marie Curie
date_of_death: July 4, 1934
cause_of_death: Aplastic anemia from exposure to radiation
best_know_for: Marie Curie was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and the only woman to win the Nobel Prize twice, and the only person to win the Nobel Prize in two scientific fields. She was the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris in 1906, and the first of only five women to be buried in Le Panthéon. Working with her husband, Pierre Curie, Marie Curie discovered polonium and radium in 1898. In 1903 they won the Nobel Prize for Physics for discovering radioactivity. In 1911 she won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for isolating pure radium. Following work on X-rays during World War I, she studied radioactive substances and their medical applications.
