Eve Curie, the author of one of the most popular biographies ever written of a scientist, Madame Curie, has died at the age of 102 years.
I guess there are lots of lessons to be learnt from this, such as:
* working with radiation can halve your life expectancy (even though Nobel prizes are said to increase life expectancy!)
* whatever radiation Eve was exposed to in utero and as a child, seems to have had no ill effect.
I have no idea why the Guardian hasn't published an obituary yet, but there is one in the New York Times
