http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...pparatus_1938_-_Deutsches_Museum_-_Munich.jpg Hello everyone. According to Wikipedia, this is a photograph of the experimental apparatus with which Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann discovered nuclear fission in 1938. Unfortunately this is not enough information for me. I was just wondering if anyone could possibly take the time to explain to me exactly what is, what it does, and if it is possible to recreate one for a project (purely as a hobby, not school related at all). Thanks for your time!
