PBS The Path to Nuclear Fission, The Story of Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn 2006 TVRip SoS

German chemists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann performed the nuclear fission for the first time in history. They were helped by Lise Meitner. She later with her nephew Otto Robert Frisch theoretically explained the reaction. Nuclear fission can be used both for the production of electricity and driving nuclear weapons.
