Die Frau in der Wissenschaft Originaltonaufnahmen by Lise Meitner( Recording )

5 editions published in 2003 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lise Meitner (1878-1968) ist die große Dame, man möchte sagen selbstbewusste Verkörperung des Weiblichen in der Wissenschaft ihrer Zeit und eine der ersten Frauen (in) der Physik. Über viele Jahre forschte und lehrte sie an der Seite von Otto Hahn bevor sie, von den Nationalsozialisten aus Berlin vertrieben, 1938 nach Schweden emigrieren muss. Führend in ihren Arbeiten auf dem Gebiet der Kernphysik und Radioaktivität, war sie maßgeblich an der Entdeckung und theoretischen Deutung der Kernspaltung beteiligt. Angebote, zum Bau der Atombombe in die Vereinigten Staaten zu gehen, lehnte sie ab. Die hier versammelten Tonaufnahmen vergegenwärtigen den Werdegang dieser so bemerkenswerten, eigentlich öffentlichkeitsscheuen Frau, der zugleich auch Zeugnis einer geglückten Askese ist - eines Lebens für die Forschung

Lise Meitner and the dawn of the nuclear age by Patricia Rife( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lise Meitner was the first woman to earn a Ph. D. in physics at the University of Vienna, a pioneer in the research of radioactive processes and, together with her nephew Otto Robert Frisch, an interpreter of the process of nuclear fission in 1938. She was a colleague and friend of many of the giants of 20th century physics: Max Planck, her Berlin mentor; Albert Einstein; Max von Laue; and Niels Bohr, to mention only a few. Yet at the end of World War II, her colleague of thirty years, radiochemist Otto Hahn alone was awarded the 1944 Nobel Prize in chemistry for the "discovery" of nuclear fission - a discovery based on years of research in which Meitner was directly involved before her secret escape from Nazi Germany." "In this biography, Patricia Rife interprets both the life and times of Lise Meitner (1878-1968), providing a rich background of the scientific discoveries and social milieu that affected the research, events, personalities, and politics of 20th century quantum physics. Rife asks the central question of why, given the historical evidence of Meitner's role in the interpretation of nuclear fission, was she too not awarded the Nobel Prize?"--Jacket
