I think this article should mention the fact that, at least in the United Kingdom, the method of displaying the known isotopes on the N-Z plane is named after Segrè. Also, if anyone has any information regarding why this was named after him that would also be useful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:25, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

This phrase in the article has to be wrong:
"In June 1944, Segrè was summoned into Oppenheimer's office and informed that while his father was safe, his mother had been rounded up by the Nazis in October 1943. Segrè never saw either of his parents again. His father died in Rome in October 1943"
Note he was told in 1944 his father was safe. Later is says he died in 1943.
- Yes, but maybe the information given by Oppenheimer was wrong. Anyway, we should check the source about that. Alex2006 (talk) 05:47, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
He was always known as Emilio Segrè, that should be the article name. the name in the lede should of course be his full name. Emilio Gino Segrè should be a redirect.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 19:41, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
- I agree. The moving happened maybe because the Nobel prize was assigned to Emilio Gino, although in Italy he is universally known as Emilio, as all his book were published under this name...Alex2006 (talk) 19:44, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

Father of the Bomb?
I just removed the claim, added by an anonymous ip, that Segrè has been nicknamed "father of the bomb". This claim is unsupported and, given the work accomplished by Segrè in Los Alamos, totally exaggerated. Alex2006 (talk) 08:27, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
