Dibner 168; Norman 963; DSB VI, pp. 16-17. FIRST EDITION, OFFPRINT ISSUE, of one of Hahn and Strassmann's fundamental papers on nuclear fission. In their radiochemical investigations they observed that neutron bombardment of uranium produced highly radioactive material, including the chemical elements barium, lanthanum and cerium. It was their collaborator Lise Meitner (at that time in Swedish exile from Nazi Germany), who interpreted their observations as nuclear fission. It remained to Bohr and Fermi to apply fission to the making of the atomic bomb, a project with which neither Hahn nor Strassmann had any involvement. Hahn was awarded the 1944 Nobel Prize in chemistry. (see R. Sohlmann et al. Nobel, the man and his prizes, p. 387). - Visit our website to see more images!
