At 36, Marie Curie became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize for discovering radioactivity. Unlike bullshit comic book heroes whose first encounter with radiation usually turns them in to brooding, super-strong douchebags, Curie's discovery led to a life of dedication and selfless giving. She donated nearly all of her prize money and refused to patent her discoveries so they could benefit mankind. She went on to win a second Nobel in 1911 for the discovery of radium. Sadly, the closest you will come to a radiation discovery is when you accidentally overcook your kids' Hot Pockets in the microwave.
