Abstract The centennials of the discovery of radioactivity by Antoine Henri Becquerel in 1896 and of the discovery of polonium and radium by Pierre and Marie Curie in 1898 have been amply celebrated. In 1903 the Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded to the three scientists. The vicissitudes of the awarding and sharing of the prize are reviewed.
