2015 Women's History Month STEM Biography Series Roundup

For Women's History Month I posted daily biographies of women scientists. In case you couldn't tell by my Women in STEM jewelry series, I'm pretty obsesse

Lise Meitner, (1878-1968) A Jewish scientist, she escaped from the Nazis to Sweden in 1938, and carried out the key calculations that led to the discovery of nuclear fission. Her collaborator, Otto Hahn, who stayed behind in Germany, was the sole recipient of the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1944. In 1997 Meitner was finally honored when element 109 was named meitnerium.

Lise Meitner was an Austrian physicist who worked on radioactivity and nuclear physics. Meitner was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission, an achievement for which her colleague Otto Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize

Recently, New Scientist had an article about Emmy Noether because 2015 is the one hundredth anniversary of Noether’s Theorem. I’m not going to link to it because it’s behind a pay wall. A couple of…

Unsung? I hardly think so

Lise Meitner was an Austrian, later Swedish, physicist who worked on radioactivity and nuclear physics. Meitner was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission, an achievement for which her colleague Otto Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize.

Lise Meitner:  física de formación, empezó una colaboración con el químico alemán Otto Hahn. A través del correo postal, Meitner guiaba a Hahn a través de los experimentos que condujeron al descubrimiento de la fisión nuclear. Hahn publicó los resultados sin incluir a Meitner como coautora, en principio por protegerla del panorama político. Pero el hecho es que al final él se quedó con todo el mérito y recibió el Premio Nobel de Química.

Lise Meitner studied radiation and nuclear physics, breaking through huge barriers as a woman and a Jew. With her nephew Otto Frisch discovered nuclear fission. She refused to work on the creation of nuclear weapons. Painted by Orlando Leibovitz

"Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History." These women misbehaved, but where are they in our history books?
