Bethany Halford's insights article "Fullerene for the Face" mentions Marie Curie's discovery of radium in the context of discussing the limited likelihood of translating a Nobel Prize-winning discovery into a fantastic consumer product (C&EN, March 27, page 47). Actually, the discovery of radium did lead to a popular (if not fantastic) consumer product: the luminous-dial clock. Furthermore, this example also serves to illustrate the article's warning about the potential danger involved in such development; several of the young women applying the radium-containing paint to the luminous dial died of cancer.
