The untold story of discovery Meitner and Hahn in the lab Although she was clearly the victim of a great injustice, Meitner apparently harboured no resentment. She quickly saw both the positive and negative aspects of the discovery and was repulsed by the idea of nuclear weapons. She was asked if she would take part in the Manhattan Project but refused. She was also asked if she would be involved in the making of the film about the Manhattan Project and the bombing of Hiroshima entitled The Beginning Or The End.
Typically for her she rejected the invitation: This was a fascinating story, well told with great enthusiasm, and we should be grateful to Agutter for suggesting Meitner and promoting her case so passionately.
Occasionally, however, Parris and Agutter sounded slightly out of their depth with the science. There has always been the question of what sort of relationship Meitner and Hahn had.
This feels to me like a non-scientist glamorising our profession. In my experience, in-depth scientific discussion can throw people together but without mutual attraction it is unlikely to lead to intimacy. So, why is Meitner not more well known, and why did she not get more credit for her work? There are several reasons. She was a woman in science at the beginning of the 20th century when it was most unusual for women to be accepted as scientists. Hahn, however, continued to maintain that he was the sole discoverer of fission, through accepting the Nobel Prize in and for the rest of his life.

A very human physicist

No, said Lise Meitner; Hahn was too good a chemist for that. But how could barium be formed from uranium? No larger fragments than protons or helium nuclei alpha particles had ever been chipped away from nuclei, and to chip off a large number not nearly enough energy was available. After separation, the two drops would be driven apart by their mutual electric repulsion and would acquire high speed and hence a very large energy, about MeV in all; where could that energy come from?
