Marie Curie——a Great Woman

玛丽居里--个伟大的女性

At home, Marie the wife and mother, bathed her baby daughter and did the work of the house. In the laboratory, Marie the scientist was making one of the most important discoveries of science. A few years before, a certain scientist had discovered that a metal called uranium gave a kind of radiation, which Marie Curie was later to call radioactivity. But where did this radiation come from and what was it like? Here was a secret of nature which she set out to discover. Only a scientist could understand all that this pursuit meant. The experiments were done most carefully again and again. There was failure, success, more failure, and a little success, and a little more success. She repeated her experiments once, twice, ten times, twenty times. All seemed to prove that in the mineral which she was examining there was something, some form of radiation which man knew nothing about.

在家里,玛丽又当妻子又当母亲,给女儿洗澡,还做家务。在实验室里,科学家玛丽正在做出科学上最重大的发现之一。几年前,某位科学家已经发现,有一种叫作铀的金属释放出一种射线,后来玛丽居里称之为放射性。但是射线来自哪里,是什么样子的?这就是一个她力图去发现的自然秘密。只有一位科学家方能理解所有这些探索意味着什么。实验一次次精心地进行着。失败,成功,更多的失败,少许的成功,更多的成功。她重复自己的实验,一次,两次,十次,二十次。一切似乎都在证明,她做实验的矿物之中,有一种人类还一无所知的东西——某种形式的射线。

Four years before this, Marie had expressed her thoughts in words much like these: Life is not easy for any of us. We must work, and above all we must believe in ourselves. We must believe that each one of us is able to do something well, and that, when we discover what this something is, we must work until we succeed. This is something in Madame Curie's own life which was to lead science down a new path to a great discovery.

在此四年前,玛丽大致用这样的话表达过自己的思想:生活对我们任何人都不容易。我们必须工作,首要的是,我们必须相信自己。我们必须相信,我们每个人都能够把某件事情做好,当我们发现这件事情是什么的时候,我们必须全力以赴,直到取得成功。正是居里夫人生命中的某种东西,引导着科学沿着一条新的道路,走向一个伟大的发现。
