Storyboard Text

  • We have experienced so many surprises in nuclear physics that one cannot say without hesitation about anything - It's Impossible
  • Otto Hahn's partner, Lise Meitner, a physicist,was forced out of Germany by Hitler - Pg. 14
  • If you really do form two such fragments, they would be pushed apart with great force
  • Responding to Hahn's letter, talking of the new discovery (soon called Fission)
  • Meitner and her nephew, Otto Frisch, another physicist, sit and talk of Hahn's discovery
  • Yes, that's what I mean
  • Meitner starts working out the math of the uranium fragments
  • Both physicists figure out that the energy of one fragment of a uranium atom can make a grain of sand jump
  • While Frisch sketches out the split, Meitner agrees with the drawing and gives her description of the problem
