  • Hi!! Nothing much just tensed due to this science project.
  • Hey Angela! What's wrong u look tired.
  • Really? It's so nice of you to help. I have to write about the discovery of Radium!
  • Oh then why didn't u say that before? Let's go to the park and complete it!
  • Radium was discovered by Marie Curie, a Polish chemist, in 1898.
  • Let's begin! I will take notes simulta--neously.
  • Marie Curie obtained radium from pitchblende, a material that contains uranium, after noticing that unrefined pitchblende was more radioactive than the uranium that was separated from it.
  • She reasoned that pitchblende must contain at least one other radioactive element. Curie needed to refine several tons of pitchblende in order to obtain tiny amounts of radium
  • And that's how we got Radium as we know it today. Well that sums it up. I hope it helps u!
  • That was really helpful. Thanks to you i have taken all the notes!
