Answer by  Chris48 (475)

True. Maria and Pierre Curie shared the 1903 Physics prize. Marie won the Chemistry prize in 1911. Their daughter, Irène Joliot-Curie and her husband, Frederic shared the Chemistry Prize in 1935. Moreover, UNICEF won the Peace Prize in 1965 when the husband of Maria's second daughter, Henry Labouisse, was the organization's director.

Marie Curie won the Nobel in Physics in 1903 and in Chemistry in 1911. Her husband Pierre shared the prize in 1903. IreneJoliot Curie shared the 1935 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. So, I'd say there were five prize winners, but only three prizes.
