    The dramatic splitting of the atom—“nuclear fission”—was a discovery which changed our world. Yet few know that it was a woman physicist who discovered the power of nuclear energy just after her dramatic escape from Nazi Germany. The irony of the story of Lise Meitner is that her laboratory partner of thirty years, Otto Hahn, who remained in Berlin throughout the Third Reich, was. ^ a b c "Lise Meitner Dies; Atomic Pioneer, Lise Meitner, Physicist, Is Dead.

    Lise Meitner The Mother of the Atom Bomb (Streaming Video): To historians, physicist Lise Meitner deserves to be placed with Einstein, Heisenberg, and Otto Hahn. In the s on the verge of World War II, she led a small group of scientists who discovered that splitting the atomic nucleus of uranium releases enormous energy. This biography of Lise Meitner (), the Austrian Jewish female physicist at the heart of the discovery of nuclear fission, also looks at major developments in physics during her life. Meitner was a colleague and friend of many giants of 20th century physics: Max Planck, her Berlin mentor, Einstein, von Laue, Marie Curie, Chadwick, Pauli.
