Von Laue, Meitner and Hahn, 1959. German chemists Otto Hahn (1879-1968, right) and Lise Meitner (1878-1968, centre in front of a bust of Hahn) worked together in Berlin for nearly 30 years. In the 1930s they worked on uranium bombarded with neutrons. By 1939, Hahn in Germany and, a month later, Meitner in Sweden, announced that they had obtained nuclear fission for the first time. Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1944. Max Laue (1879-1960, right) was awarded the 1914 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on X-ray diffraction. Photographed in 1959, at the dedication ceremony of the Hahn-Meitner Institute, Berlin, Germany.
