Caption: Max Born (1882-1970), Lise Meitner (1878-1968, centre), Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) and Otto Hahn (1879-1968). All but Meitner won a Nobel Prize for their work. Born shared the 1954 Nobel Prize in Physics with Walther Bothe for his work on quantum mechanics and interpreting the quantum wavefunction statistically. Meitner was a pioneer of nuclear chemistry and was instrumental, along with Otto Hahn, in the discovery of nuclear fission. Hahn received the 1944 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work but Meitner was overlooked. Heisenberg devised the Uncertainty Principle (the position and momentum of a particle can never be known at the same time) and was awarded the 1932 Nobel Prize in Physics 'for the creation of quantum mechanics'.
