Lise Meitner: Had the Right Vision About Nuclear Fission

As a girl, Lise Meitner loved math and physics — but when she was born in the late 1800s, girls weren't supposed to be scientists. She didn't care; she was going to keep learning and discovering. Working with a chemist named Otto Hahn, she built a name for herself as a top-notch physicist. And when Hahn had a result he couldn't explain, her turned to her for help. Meitner's equations proved what had happened: he had split a uranium atom and discovered nuclear fission!

In this appealing book, kids will learn all about Meitner's trailblazing life and work, as well as the importance of her explosive discovery. Author and artist Mike Venezia provides hilarious, cartoon-style illustrations to complement his easy-to-read text and full-color reproductions of the scientists' sketches and notebooks.
