Lise Meitner (7 November 1878 – 27 October 1968) wis an Austrick-Swadish pheesicist wha worked on radioactivity an nuclear pheesics. Otto Hahn an Meitner led the smaw group o scientists wha first discovered nuclear fission o uranium when it absorbed an extra neutron; the results war published in early 1939.[4][5]
