Dr. Lise Meitner (1878-1968) - Jewish Austrian-Swedish physicist known for her co-discovery of nuclear fission. In 1906 she became the 2nd woman ever to graduate with a doctorate of physics from the University of Vienna. When asked to join the Manhattan Project, Meitner refused, declaring ‘I will have nothing to do with a bomb!’ The inscription on her headstone reads “Lise Meitner: a physicist who never lost her humanity.”

Otto Hahn und Lise Meitner. Nur otto bekam den Nobel-Preis

Otto Hahn und Lise Meitner. Nur otto bekam den Nobel-Preis

Lise Meitner, Jewish Austrian physicist who was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission, an achievement for which her colleague Otto Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize, and she was ignored. Born Nov 7, 1878, her sun was in Scorpio, sign of nuclear energy, her moon in Aries, sign of leadership and "firsts." Birth time unknown.

Lise Meitner  (7 or 17 November 1878 – 27 October 1968) was an Austrian-born Physicist. Meitner was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission, an achievement for which her colleague Otto Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize. Meitner is often mentioned as one of the most glaring examples of women’s scientific achievement overlooked by the Nobel committee.
