It's interesting, without being exciting

Controversial not to put Curie up against herself!

One of Curie's effectively says "For Helping out Henri Becquerel" - bet she loved that.

I had two sources, Wiki and the Nobel people, neither of which produced a particularly satisfying list. This one al least gives more than just the first-named when more than one person shares a prize.

I don't think it is capturing the electorate's imagination quite as well as I had hoped.

IMHO there should not be a killing the X/other Nobel option for these polls. At the very least those who wish to vote should be looking things up on Wikipedia. To express myself more assertively, anyone who is not voting for (say) Svetlana Alexievich and has not read some of her work needs to take a long, hard look at themselves.

I agree with the killing the X comment. Make a decision, dammit!

But I quite like the ridiculous wild cards.

GOLD: Marie Curie, who became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person — man or woman — to win the award twice. With her husband Pierre Curie, Marie's efforts led to the discovery of polonium and radium and, after Pierre's death, the further development of X-rays. The famed scientist died in 1934 of aplastic anemia likely caused by exposure to radiation

SILVER: Jody Williams, (born October 9, 1950, Putney, Vermont, U.S.), American activist who helped found the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL). In 1997 she and the campaign were named corecipients of the Nobel Prize for Peace

BRONZE: Nadia Murad Basee Taha, an Iraqi Yazidi human rights activist who lives in Germany. In 2014, she was kidnapped from her hometown Kocho and held by the Islamic State for three months.
