SCIENCES 81628

An picture dated September 1949 of American nuclear scientist Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) (R) with Italian born, American nuclear scientist Enrico Fermi (1901-1954). Robert Oppenheimer became director of the atom bomb project at Los Alamos (1943-45), chairman of the advisory committee to the US Atomic Energy Commission (1946-1952) and Director of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton (1947). Opposing the hydrogen bomb project, in 1953 he was suspended from secret nuclear research as a security risk, but was awarded the Enrico Fermi Prize in 1963. Enrico Fermi (1901-1954) split a number of nuclei by bombardment with neutrons, for which he was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize for Physics. Fermi played a prominent role in atomic energy, and constructed the first US nuclear reactor (1942) as part of the atomic bomb project. The Enrico Fermi Award of the US Department of Energy is given in his honour. / AFP PHOTO
