Pierre Curie, French physicist

Pierre Curie (1859-1906), Nobel Prize-winning French physicist. Curie studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, where he subsequently became an assistant teacher. With his brother he discovered the piezoelectric effect in crystals. In 1895 he married Polish-French physicist Marie Sklodowska and together they embarked on joint research into the newly discovered phenomenon of radioactivity. Although sometimes dangerous, their work was highly successful: they discovered two new elements (polonium and radium) and won the 1903 Nobel Prize for physics. Pierre Curie died in a road accident

Bird flu arriving in Britain Featured 16 May 2003 Print

Bird flu arriving in Britain

Bird flu arriving in Britain, conceptual computer artwork. The flock of birds flying over the white cliffs of Dover, UK, has taken the shape of a skull. In January and February 2006, the deadly H5N1 strain of avian influenza (bird flu) was detected in most mainland European countries. This disease is invariably fatal in poultry and many other birds, and can be carried by many other bird species. It is spread to humans by direct contact or the inhalation of the faeces of affected birds, and can be fatal in humans, with up to 100 deaths attributed to it by early 2006. At this time, however, it could not be spread from human to human, although it is feared that it may mutate into such a form, with devastating consequences
