RadSafers --
If you ever find yourself in the Albuquerque, NM area with a little time, do yourself a HUGE favor and visit the National Atomic Museum. There you will find an excellent exhibit on Lise Meitner's contributions (which were absolutely critical -- pardon the pun) to the discovery of fission. See http://atomicmuseum.com
