Curie?

Let's see... you are in Paris. Louis Pasteur? No, he didn't get a Nobel prize. Pierre Curie? He did get a Nobel prize, but the Institut Curie is in rue d'Ulm (the Bourbaki street...). Is there a rue Curie in Paris where he had a lab? Sorry, I give up!

Jeffrey Shallit said...

Yes, it's the laboratory of Marie Curie, now preserved as a museum at 11, rue Pierre et Marie Curie, in Paris.

That's on a street? It looks like it's in a building. They sure do have clean, shiny, well-furnished streets in Paris.

Sorry that English is not your native language, Byzanteen.

I am too late to compete, but I did guess that it was the Curie's laboratory before checking the comments...

Have a safe trip, and do say hi to JP Allouche from me if you see him...
