French scientist, a physicist and chemist and the co-discoverer of radium with his wife, Marie, for which they won the Nobel Prize 1903 shared with Henri Becquerel. A professor of physics at the Sorbonne, he married Marie Skladowska on 7/26/1895 and they had two daughters.
On 4/19/1906, it was raining hard and crowded with traffic in Old Paris. Pierre, hunched under a large umbrella, walked absentmindedly behind a closed cab.
Not looking, he turned left to cross the street directly into the path of a heavy dray pulled by two enormous horses. He threw up his hand as he fell directly into their path. The horses avoided him but the heavy back wheel of the dray crushed his head into 16 fragments. It was 2:30 PM.
