F. colour SEM of oocysts on stomach of Anopheles

False-colour scanning electron micrograph of the stomach wall of a mosquito Anopholes stephansii infected with malarial parasites Plasmodium. The small rounded objects covering the outside stomach wall are oocysts, a stage in the life cycle of the parasite. The oocysts grow in size & the contents divide to form sporozoites, which are dispersed through the body cavity when the oocyst bursts. The released sporozoites eventually reach the salivary gland of the mosquito & are transmitted to humans when the female takes a blood meal

Marie Curie, a Polish-French chemist

Marie Curie, a Polish-French chemist, born in Warsaw in 1867 and died in France in 1934. Curie worked on radioactivity, a term she coined to describe the rays given off by uranium. Her research coincided with that of Rutherford's and Becquerel's in showing that there were three different types of radioactivity: alpha, beta and gamma. In 1903 she won the Nobel Prize for physics with her husband Pierre for their studies in radioactive radiations. In 1911 she won the Nobel Prize for the second time, in chemistry, for the discovery of two new elements, radium and polonium. She died in 1934 of leukaemia caused by the overexposure to radioactive radiation
