The person I have selected is Lise Meitner
Quick background on Lisa Her impact on Nuclear Fission
Without Lise Meitner’s contributions to science, we wouldn’t have nuclear power or the atomic bomb. But you’ve probably never heard her name because sexism and racism kept Meitner’s name off the Nobel Prize.
Meitner collaborated for more than 30 years with chemist Otto Hahn, whose experiments made nuclear fission a reality. But it was Meitner, not Hahn, who figured out how nuclear fission works. Unfortunately, as a Jew in the early 20th century, Meitner didn’t want her name on the paper. Later, when their work was up for a Nobel consideration, a Nobel committee member actively and successfully kept her name off the prize. Only Hahn is recognized for the discovery of nuclear fission, even though the war had already ended and Nazi Germany was no more.
I have attached the instructions for the assignment as well.
