Otto Hahn and Lise Meitner, 1959. German chemists Otto Hahn (1879-1968, left) and Lise Meitner (1878-1968, right) 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. Photographed in 1959, at the dedication ceremony of the Hahn-Meitner Institute, Berlin, Germany. The formal title at top (in German) translates as 'Hahn-Meitner Institute for Nuclear Research, Berlin'.
