Caption: Otto Frisch (1904-79), Austrian-British physicist, seen in his costume for a party at Los Alamos in 1945. The party was organised by the 'British Mission', British scientists working on the Manhattan Project to build the first nuclear bomb. The party included a pantomime in which Frisch played the part of a house-maid. The party took place shortly after the end of the Second World War. Frisch had worked in Britain since being forced to leave his native Austria in 1933. Frisch was an expert on nuclear fission, a term he invented, and was the first to calculate the enormous energy that fission could release.
