[00:04.49]Lesson 1
[00:07.44]1 Dialogue
[00:09.21]1 对话
[00:10.97]Four doctors are at a medical conference1.
[00:15.70]A:Which speech are you going to listen to this afternoon?
[00:20.77]B:I haven't decided2.There's a talk on cancer that might be quite interesting,
[00:27.61]so perhaps I'll go to that.
[00:30.96]A:Has it got anything to do with you present research?
[00:35.92]B:No.It has nothing to do with it at all.
[00:40.57]C:I'm not sure whether to go to the one about accidents.
[00:45.43]D:It's Dr3 Stone,isn't it?She's usually good.
[00:51.70]C:Perhaps I'll go to that one.
[00:55.35]D:How did you find the talk this morning?
[00:59.79]A:Very disappointing.Maybe it was useful for some people,but it wasn't for me.
[01:08.00]I doubt if he'll be asked to speak again next year.
[01:12.67]D:I'm not sure that this conference is as good as last year's.
[01:19.02]A:No,I'm sure it's not.
[01:22.57]B:Which speech are you going to?
[01:26.33]D:I'm not going to any I need some fresh air,so I'm going out for a walk
[01:34.88]B:Have fun.

[01:50.42]MADAME5 CURIE
[01:53.37](1)Madame Curie will always be remembered as the discoverer of radium6.
[02:02.33]Marie Curie was born in Poland, on November 7th, 1867.
[02:10.19]When she was young,she became interested in physics
[02:15.47]and read as many books as she could on the subject.
[02:20.33]At that time women were not admitted to universities in Poland,
[02:26.49]so Marie was determined7 to go to Paris and study there.
[02:32.45]She arrived in Paris in 1891.
[02:37.31]She had very little money to live on,
[02:41.25]ate very little and was always cold in winter.
[02:46.71]There was a small fire in her room,but she had to carry coal up six floors
[02:54.97]and wear an overcoat in her small room to keep warm.
[03:00.01]She succeeded in taking a first-class degree in physics
[03:05.29]two years after arriving in Paris.
[03:09.73]After graduation she took another degree in mathematics8.
[03:14.90]In 1895 she married Pierre Curie,a very bright scientist.
[03:22.45]who was teaching9 at the School of Physics and Industrial Chemistry at Paris.
[03:28.82]Marie started to do research,
[03:32.66]even though she had very little equipment and no money.
[03:37.84]Not long before another scientist had found that uranium gave off rays,
[03:45.70]so Marie decided to study this area for her doctor's degree.

[03:51.16]She gave these rays a new name "radioactive10".
[03:56.80]One day she made an important discovery.
[04:00.88]There was a certain mineral which was even more radioactive than uranium.
[04:07.04]Therefore,she decided,it must contain some other matter
[04:11.90]that no one had yet discovered
[04:15.56]In 1898 she discovered the first of these new radioactive minerals,
[04:23.00]which she named "polonium" in honour of her motherland Poland
[04:29.37]and on which she wrote a research paper.
[04:33.74]From then on,Marie and Pierre worked together on their research.
[04:39.38]They devoted11 all their hours to working in their laboratory12.
[04:44.34]As months went by,the work seemed endless.
[04:49.38]Marie described her thoughts in words much like this:
[04:54.24]"Life is not easy for any of us."
[04:58.19]We must work,and above all we must believe in ourselves.
[05:04.14]We must believe that each one of us is able to do something well,
[05:09.92]and that,when we discover what this something is,
[05:15.17]we must work hard at it until we succeed.
[05:20.03]One evening in 1902 as she was sitting with Pierre at home,she said to him,
[05:27.50]"Let's go down to the laboratory again."
[05:31.44]It was nine o'clock and they had been there only two hours before.
[05:37.40]They put on their overcoats and went down to the laboratory
[05:42.36]As they opened the door on the ground floor,Marie said,
[05:48.13]"Don't light the lamps.Look!"
[05:51.90]On the laboratory bench was a glass container
[05:57.36]from which came a tiny soft light
[06:01.61]It was what they had been working so hard to find:pure radium.
[06:08.69]The matter that the Curies had discovered was radium.
[06:14.02]It looked like ordinary salt,
[06:17.97]but was one million times more radioactive than uranium.
[06:24.21]Its rays could go through every mineral except lead.
[06:29.67]In 1903 Marie received her doctor's degree for her study on radioactive matter.
[06:37.32]Altogether,between 1899 and 1904 she and Pierre wrote 34 articles about their work
[06:47.48]Marie Curie never made money out of her research.
[06:52.45]She refused to treat these new discoveries as though they belonged to her,
[06:58.32]and instead shared all her knowledge with the whole scientific world.

[07:18.39]Madame Curie(2)
[07:22.15]Polonium and radium were important discoveries.
[07:27.71]Polonium is used to set off a nuclear bomb

[07:33.17]Radium,because of its powerful13 radioactive rays,can go deep into the human body.
[07:42.24]Scientists soon discovered that it could be used as a cure for cancer.
[07:49.39]In 1904 Marie and Pierre Curie were given the Nobel Prize for Physics.
[07:58.54]However,there is also a disadvantage which was not discovered for many years.
[08:07.18]Radioactive matter is dangerous to work with
[08:12.33]because it has a bad effect on the blood.
[08:16.69]Pierre and Marie noticed that after years of working with radioactive matter
[08:24.06]their bodies ached14 and their hands suffered too.
[08:29.31]In fact,radium not only damaged their health
[08:35.08]but also made the laboratory equipment with which they were working radioactive.
[08:42.74]Three of the Curies' notebooks wereconsidered to be too radioactive to touch
[08:49.68]seventy-five years after they were written.
[08:54.36]In 1906 Pierre died in a road accident.
[09:00.53]Marie was deeply15 shocked by Pierre's death,but was determined to go on working.
[09:08.78]Soon after the accident,
[09:12.02]she was given Pierre's post at the University of Paris
[09:17.66]as head of the Physics Department
[09:21.82]So Marie Curie became the first woman in France to be a university professor.
[09:29.18]In 1911 she received a second Nobel Prize for her research,
[09:36.05]the first person in the world to receive two Nobel Prizes.
[09:42.58]After the First World War Madame Curie travelled to the USA
[09:49.71]where she was received by the President
[09:53.58]and given a gram16 of radium for her future work.
[09:58.83]There were soon two Radium Institutes in the world,
[10:03.87]one in Paris and one in Warsaw.
[10:08.84]Marie was invited to many countries to give speeches about her work.
[10:14.58]For the last ten years of her life she was almost blind.
[10:20.93]The radium with which she had worked for many years
[10:25.89]had caused blindness and illness and finally a disease17 of the blood.
[10:32.56]She died in Paris at the age of 66.
[10:37.60]Today she is remembered and admired as a scientist.
[10:42.93]But she is also remembered for her determination and courage,
[10:48.49]her willingness to share her knowledge,her interest in women's rights,
[10:55.54]and her medical service during the war.
