    Lise Meitner


    The (                             ) (discover) in 1938 that a neutron could split an atom's core came as a complete surprise.

    There was no (                                   ) (theory) basis on which nuclear fission could be predicted and none of its (                                   ) (discover) had the slightest
    (                             ) (know) of its eventual use in atomic bombs and power plants.

    That much is (                                      ) (dispute).

    The question of who deserves (                                   ) (recognize) for the discovery is, however, a bone of contention.

Her exile led to the Nobel committee's (                       ) (fail) to recognize her contribution in the discovery of nuclear fission.
