The Thwarted Love of Lise Meitner
This event has expired and is here for your information.
It is hard to imagine a more dramatic life in science, nor one
more rife with moral dilemmas, than that of Lise Meitner; a
more troubling, if long-lived, scientific partnership than that of
Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn; or a more tarnished chapter in
the history of the Nobel Prize than the (repeated) dismissal of
Lise Meitner’s groundbreaking contributions to Physics.
Lise Meitner, often called “The Mother of the Atomic Bomb,”
worked in Germany for over 30 years. When she arrived in
Berlin from her native Vienna in 1907, she was among the
first women to seek a place in science; when she fled for her life in 1938, she was one of the last (converted) Jewish academics not yet expelled.
THE THWARTED LOVE OF LISE MEITNER probes Science's darkest years and re- veals how one remarkable female physicist rose to exceptional prominence, only to end her career a prominent exception.
