Мультфильм на канале Культура

Дети на каникулах смотрят мультфильмы. Только что закончился мультсериал:
‘Жили-были... Первооткрыватели’ (Франция, 1994)

Цитата из мультика:

Пьер и Мария Кюри

П: Мария, мы переаботали около 10 тонн урановой руды, чтобы получить совсем немного радия. Давай запатентуем наше открытие, у нас будет много денег, которые нужны нам для работы.

М: Что ты! Мы должны бесплатно рассказать людям про наше изобретение, чтобы каждый мог пользоваться.

Хороший пример однако!

Eventually they studied radioactive materials, particularly pitchblende, the ore from which uranium was extracted. By April 1898, Skłodowska-Curie deduced that pitchblende must contain traces of an unknown substance far more radioactive than uranium. In July 1898, Pierre and Marie together published an article announcing the existence of an element which they named polonium, in honor of her native Poland, then still partitioned among three empires. On December 26, 1898, the Curies announced the existence of a second element, which they named radium for its intense radioactivity — a word that they coined.

Over the course of several years of unceasing work in the most difficult physical conditions, they processed several tons of pitchblende, progressively concentrating the radioactive substances and eventually isolating the chloride salts (refining radium chloride on April 20, 1902). Polonium was not yet isolated at this time.

In an unusual decision, Skłodowska-Curie intentionally refrained from patenting the radium-isolation process so that the scientific community could do research unhindered.
