You don't have to be a nuclear physicist to understand nuclear science. The Wall Chart was created to explain to a broad audience the basic concepts of nuclear structure, radioactivity, and nuclear reactions as well as to highlight current research.

Marie Curie opened up the science of radioactivity. She is best known as the discoverer of polonium and radium and as the first person to win two Nobel prizes. Her radium was a key to a change in our understanding of matter and energy.
