Abstract NoteA biography of Lise Meitner, which provides a background of the scientific discoveries and social milieu that affected the research, personalities, and politics of 20th century quantum physics. It asks the question of why, given the evidence of Meitner's role in the interpretation of nuclear fission, was she too not awarded the Nobel Prize?
