Nuclear fission[edit]

Fixed a factual detail. Surviving letters between Hahn and Meitner confirm that Hahn could not explain the presence of barium. In fact for four years leading scientists across Europe had been splitting the atom without realizing it, considering the products of fission to be chemical contaminations of their laboratory equipment. Immediately before Meitner explained the phenomenon Hahn wrote to her stating he was certain that atoms could not split. Durova 20:48, 24 November 2005 (UTC)

hydrogen doesnt reflect neutrons[edit]

The Lady Godiva story would be closer to physics with corrected formulation 'Hydrogen in his body absorbed neutrons but despite this the heavier nuclei of oxygen, carbon, nitrogen etc. were able to reflect some neutrons back to the uranium stack.' Maybe Otto Frisch or somebody else actually talked the story with reflecting hydrogen, I don’t know. 11:42, 6 February 2014 (UTC) Vladimir

Confirmed - the hydrogen is mentioned perhaps by mistake in "Making of the atomic bomb", but Otto Robert Frisch didnt mention it in "What little I remember" — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vyrge (talkcontribs) 05:41, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
