Enrico Fermi

Enrico Fermi (29 September 1901 – 28 November 1954) was an Italian-born, naturalized American physicist particularly known for his work on the development of the first nuclear reactor, Chicago Pile-1, and for his contributions to the development of quantum theory, nuclear and particle physics, and statistical mechanics.

Last edited 2 months ago by Asadron Fermi problem This article is about the estimation technique. For Fermi's question about extraterrestrial life, see Fermi Paradox. In physics or engineering education, a Fermi problem, Fermi question, or Fermi estimate is an estimation problem designed to teach dimensional analysis, approximation, and the importance of clearly identifying one's assumptions. Named after physicist Enrico Fermi, such problems typically involve making justified guesses about quantities that seem impossible to compute given limited available information. Fermi was known for his ability to make good approximate calculations with little or no actual data, hence the name. One example is his estimate of the strength of the atomic bomb detonated at the Trinity test, based on the distance travelled by pieces of paper dropped from his hand during the blast.[1] Fermi's estimate of 10 kilotons of TNT was remarkably close to the now-accepted value of around 20 kilotons. Examples Advantages and scope E ...
Who invented atom bomb? During World War II, the United States, with the assistance (collaboration) of physicists, mathematicians, and engineers from the U.S., Britain, Canada and Europe, completed the Manhattan Project to produce the first atomic bomb. (The project started as the "Manhattan District Engineers" and only became "The Manhattan Project" some time later). There was some early speculation about the possibility of what could be done if a nuclear chain reaction was unleashed in a way that would allow it to build without control. For a roll call, consider that Robert Oppenheimer was the head of "science" for the Manhattan Project, and (in alphabetical order) Felix Block, David Bohm, Niels Bohr, Enrico Fermi, James Franck, Otto Frisch, Klaus Fuchs, Rudolf Peierls, Emilio Segre, Leo Szilard, Edward Teller and Eugene Wigner all played crucial roles in getting the weapon designed and built. The physicist Albert Einstein did not participate directly in the invention of the atomic bomb-but was instrume ...

Enrico Fermi was one of the greatest physicists of all time. Take a look at the history of any branch of physics, and he was there, helping things along. Take a look at his most famous portrait and he made a boneheaded mistake. Maybe on purpose.
Hedgehog or Fox? Scientists come in two varieties, hedgehogs and foxes... foxes know many tricks, hedgehogs only one. Foxes are broad, hedgehogs are deep. Foxes are interested in everything and move easily from one problem to another. Hedgehogs are only interested in a few problems that they consider fundamental, and stick with the same problems for years or decades. Most of the great discoveries are made by hedgehogs, most of the little discoveries by foxes. Science needs both hedgehogs and foxes for its healthy growth, hedgehogs to dig deep into the nature of things, foxes to explore the complicated details of our marvelous universe. Albert Einstein and Edwin Hubble were hedgehogs. Charley Townes, who invented the laser, and Enrico Fermi, who built the first nuclear reactor in Chicago, were foxes. — Freeman Dyson In 'The Future of Biotechnology', A Many-Colored Glass: Reflections on the Place of Life in the Universe

Best *** news I've heard in a donkey's age. I think that naming it Indigenous Peoples Day is long, long overdue, and if we really do need to have a day to honor the contributions of Italian Americans in the building of this country, then let's create one in the memory of Enrico Fermi, or Guglielmo Marconi, or Fiorello La Guardia. Those people are worthy of our admiration. Columbus was guilty of genocide and arguably one of the most putrescent and odious individuals ever to walk the Earth. Might as well have a day dedicated to Heinrich Himmler as to Columbus.

During a lunch at Los Alamos in 1950, physicist Enrico Fermi asked his colleagues working on the Manhattan Project, "Don't you ever wonder where everybody is?" Fermi argued that given the large number of stars and planetary systems in the Milky Way and their old age, life should have arose and acquired technology that would be far more advanced than ours.Don't miss this brilliant talk by
Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? Here are some answers, in the spirit of various well-known physicists, to the age-old question: Why did the chicken cross the road?   Albert Einstein: The chicken did not cross the road. The road passed beneath the chicken. Isaac Newton: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest. Chickens in motion tend to cross roads. Wolfgang Pauli: There was already a chicken on this side of the road. Carl Sagan: There are billions and billions of such chickens, crossing roads just like this one, all across the universe. [Apologies for perpetuating the misquote.] Jean-Dernard-Leon Foucault: What’s interesting is that if you wait a few hours, it will be crossing the road a few inches back that way. Robert Van de Graaf: Hey, doesn’t it look funny with all its feathers sticking up like that? Albert Michelson and Edward Morley: Our experiment was a failure. We could not detect the road. Ludwig Boltzmann: If you have enough chickens, it is a near certainty that one of them will cross the ...
Last week, scientists announced the discovery of Kepler-186f, a planet 492 light years away in the Cygnus constellation. Kepler-186f is special because it marks the first planet almost exactly the same size as Earth orbiting in the “habitable zone” – the distance from a star in which we might expect liquid water, and perhaps life. What did not make the news, however, is that this discovery also slightly increases how much credence we give to the possibility of near-term human extinction. This because of a concept known as the Great Filter . The Great Filter is an argument that attempts to resolve the Fermi Paradox : why have we not found aliens, despite the existence of hundreds of billions of solar systems in our galactic neighbourhood in which life might evolve? As the namesake physicist Enrico Fermi noted, it seems rather extraordinary that not a single extraterrestrial signal or engineering project has been detected (UFO conspiracy theorists notwithstanding). This apparent absence of thriving ex ...

"College was the fulfillment of my dreams: I found teachers who not only understood science, but who were actually able to explain it. I was lucky enough to attend one of the great institutions of learning of the time, the University of Chicago. I was a physics student in a department orbiting around Enrico Fermi; I discovered what true mathematical elegance is from Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar; I was given the chance to talk chemistry with Harold Urey; over summers I was apprenticed in biology to H.J. Muller at Indiana University; and I learned planetary astronomy from its only full-time practitioner at the time, G.P. Kuiper." - Carl Sagan

SCIENTIST SPLITS ATOM, FINDS TOY PRIZE INSIDE Promise of Hidden Surprises Has Propelled Fission Research for Decades Princeton, N.J. ( — A Princeton physicist recently split an atom of hydrogen and found a toy prize inside, the journal Science reported in its June issue. Fermi's toy surprise In this colorized photo, physicist Enrico Fermi brags about the plastic whistle he found after splitting open a uranium atom. "It was just a cheap plastic clicker you use to make cricket sounds, and it broke, like, the second time I used it, but it was the surprise I found most satisfying," said Prof. Harold Lumiere of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. Science noted that it was the first prize found inside an atom since Allison Wyatt of Cambridge University discovered a magic puzzle toy in a lithium atom in February. For Lumiere, it was the first time in his 15-year, atom-splitting career that he has come across anything more than the normal protons, gluons, and quarks. "I know that over at MIT ...

One of the best scientist "Enrico Fermi"(1901-1954) ,he was born in Rome on 29 sept.1901 .He obtained his doctorate at Pisa.Working with leading scientists in the new quantum mechanics ,in 1926 at university of Rome,he investigated the statical mechanics of those particles that obey Pauli's exclusion principle ,such as electrons.Dirac independently arrived at the same conclusion shortly afterword and hence the result is finally named as Fermi-Dirac statistic.In1933,fermi introduced the concept of the weak interaction and used it together with Pauli's newly postulated neutrino to develop a thory of beta decay. Later in 1930s fermi and a group oe collaborators carried out a series of experiments in which radionuclides were produced artificially by bombarding various elements with slow neutrons,which found to be most effective.This giving rise to the formation of transuranic elements.In1938 Farmi recived the Nobel Prize for this work.He then went to the United States.As a part of atom bomb project ,Fermi w . ...

General Information about Italy: Italy is defined as a Democratic republic based on Work by the Italian constituition first article. Italy have ancient roots and such as India had also Italy had an advanced civilization: The Roman empire, which extended from Portugal to the middle-east, with its vital point in Rome, the core of the western civilization. The Italian language has its origins in the Latin language, with other European languages such as French, Spanish Romanian etc etc. To Italy beongs some of the most brilliant men of the history such as Dante allighieri, Leonardo da vinci, Raffaello, Michelangelo, Giotto, Marconi, Primo Levi, Enrico Fermi. Italy is worldwide known for its touristic and historical cities and monuments such as Venice, Pisa, Rome and Vatican city, Florence and also for Fashion with its epicentre in Milan.

The Fermi Paradox (or Fermi's paradox) is the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilization and humanity's lack of contact with, or evidence for, such civilizations. The basic points of the argument, made by physicists Enrico Fermi and Michael H. Hart, are: The Sun is a young star. There are billions of stars in the galaxy that are billions of years older; some of these stars probably have Earth-like planets which, if the Earth is typical, may develop intelligent life; presumably, some of these civilizations will develop interstellar travel, a technology Earth is investigating even now; at any practical pace of interstellar travel, the galaxy can be completely colonized in a few tens of millions of years. According to this line of thinking, the Earth should already have been colonized, or at least visited. But no convincing evidence of this exists. Furthermore, no confirmed signs of intelligence elsewhere have been spotted, either in our ...

Enrico Fermi is a great name for a metal band.
The names of certain scientific pioneers and geniuses are known to us all. Enrico Fermi, Thomas Edison, Marie Curie, Guglielmo Marconi and so many others dedicated their lives to improving the lot of their fellows through the power of their minds and their belief in their dreams. But what if these icons of science had chosen, instead, to turn their awesome intellect to evil pursuits and heinous ends? How might our world have been changed from what it is now to what they might have engineered it to be? Alternate Worlds: Evil Genius is an anthology intended for the contributing writers to take one of these stellar intellects and imagine them in a sinister role instead. Was Bell's telephone originally a covert listening device? Was Morse's telegraph used to contact secret alien strongholds? Were Einstein and Oppenheimer actually under contract to the Mafia? Will you take up the challenge and tell us?
Wikipedia "An earlier error occurred when Enrico Fermi submitted his breakthrough paper on the weak interaction theory of beta decay. Nature turned down the paper because it was considered too remote from reality. Fermi's paper was published by Zeitschrift für Physik in 1934, and finally published by Nature 5 years later, after Fermi's work had been widely accepted." Good job, Dr. Fermi! Born to be physicist!
Eric- Mom, did you know Enrico Fermi invented plastic and cardboard paper towel rolls? Which was really lucky for him that they invented paper towels at the same time. :) indeed.
ENFIELD — An Enrico Fermi High School assistant basketball coach has resigned after being charged with soliciting prostitution in Windsor Locks last Friday. John Norris, 53, of Enfield had been working as Fermi's JV basketball assistant coach
Deep thought: When you fly out of Detroit or go to Ohio on I-75, you can see the cooling towers of the Enrico Fermi nuclear plant. "The Nobel Prize-winning (1938) physicist Enrico Fermi was willing to bet anyone that the first atomic bomb test would wipe out all life on Earth, with special odds on the mere destruction of the entire State of New Mexico!"
If you don't get buck just thinking about Enrico Fermi's contributions to science, there's something wrong with you

and I m inclined to come to a skeptic's conclusion.that as this creation was created.out of a wish for described in will end by the light.of a thousand the eminent scientist enrico Fermi.described the first xplosions of a nuclear the deserts is said.that he murmured a verse of bhagavat gita. to describe the energy that was released from that xplosion.also when he saw the first light from the explosion.he just dropped a few shreds of the ground.and as the paper shreds.fell away at a distant place.he calculated.almost accurately.the energy released by the thermo-nuclear xplosion.

CNN, AJE n BBC... Is the world really dat bad??? Like for real, are there no more good news happenin around the world?, cos all u show these days are bad news... Am tired of all I see in today's world... Wat about d days of Isidor Rabbi, Enrico Fermi, Oppenheimer, Paul Dirac, Wolfgang Pauli et all... There all lived in hash times, yet were better off than we are presently... Am ashamed of humanity period!!!
if it was good enough for Enrico Fermi its good enough for me
Pauli Effect!/???experiments would self-destruct simply because Pauli. Since the 20th century, the work of physics research has been divided between theorists and experimentalists (see scientific method). Only a few physicists, such as Enrico Fermi, have been successful in both roles. Lacking an aptitude or interest in experimental work, many theorists have earned a reputation for accidentally breaking experimental equipment. Pauli was exceptional in this regard: it was said that he was such a good theorist that any experiments would self-destruct simply because he was in the vicinity. For fear of the Pauli effect, the experimental physicist Otto Stern banned Pauli from his laboratory in Hamburg despite their friendship.[1] An incident occurred in the physics laboratory at the University of Göttingen. An expensive measuring device, for no apparent reason, suddenly stopped working, although Pauli was in fact absent. James Franck, the director of the institute reported the incident to his colleague Pauli . ...

Feb 16th, Moment In Black History ATOMIC *** Ralph Gardner was a pioneer chemist whos research into plastics led to the development of so called hard plastics. His innovations in the manipulation of catalytic chemicals led to products for the petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as plastics. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, on Dec 3rd, 1922, Gardner was the son of educated parents who provided him with the chemistry set that led to his career. After receiving a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1943, Gardner joined the University of Chicago Argonne National Laboratories and worked on development of the atomic bomb as part of the so called Manhattan Project. Two other African Americans who worked on the development of the first atomic bomb were William J. Knox and Ernest Wilkins. Even though Gardner worked directly under the famed nuclear scientist Dr. Enrico Fermi on the Manhattan Project, Gardner could not find employment when he left the project in 1947.
Neutrino Physics 2. - Birth of Neutrinos. Neutrinos have been shrouded in mystery ever since they were first suggested by Wolfgang Pauli in 1930. At the time physicists were puzzled because nuclear beta decay appeared to break the law of energy conservation. In beta decay, a neutron in an unstable nucleus transforms into a proton and emits an electron at the same time. After much confusion and debate, the energy of the radiated electron was found to follow a continuous spectrum. This came as a great surprise to many physicists because other types of radioactivity involved gamma rays and α-particles with discrete energies. The finding even led Niels Bohr to speculate that energy may not be conserved in the mysterious world of nuclei. Pauli also struggled with this mystery. Unable to attend a physics meeting in December 1930, he instead sent a letter to the other "radioactive ladies and gentlemen" in which he proposed a "desperate remedy" to save the law of energy conservation. Pauli's remedy was to intr . ...

Leo Szilard was best known for encouraging Albert Einstein to warn President Roosevelt about the atomic bomb. He later worked with Enrico Fermi to construct the first nuclear reactor. He circulated petitions among the scientists demanding greater scientific input on the future use of atomic weapons.

What if you had a device that could see into the future and revisit the past? And what if you didn't need Christopher Lloyd to help you? Father Pellegrino Maria Ernetti, an Italian priest, claimed in the 1960s to have invented what he called a Chronovisor, something that allowed him to witness Christ's crucifixion. The device supposedly enabled viewers to watch any event in human history by tuning in to remnant vibrations that are caused by every action. (His team of researchers and builders included Enrico Fermi, who also worked on the first atomic bomb. On his deathbed, Fermi admitted that he had faked viewings of ancient Greece and Christ's demise, but insisted the Chronovisor, which had by then vanished, still worked. Unsurprisingly, conspiracy theorists say the Vatican is now the likely owner of the original Chronovisor

Scientific. jokes & quotes - It's generally false that within 2 points goes a straight line. Except, of course, if the 2 points are exactly facing each other. In numerical analysis, you can have 2+2 = 5, for 2 big enough and 5 small enough. A mathematician nightmare would be an epsilon going toward infinity when n goes toward zero. A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems. A topologist is a man who doesn't know the difference between a coffee cup and a doughnut. To understand recursion, you must first understand recursion. 97.3% of all statistics are made up. It was mentioned on CNN that the new prime number discovered recently is four times bigger then the previous record. The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth. (Niels Bohr) Before I die, I hope that someone will explain quantum mechanics to me. After I die, I hope that God will explain turbulence to me. (W. Heisenberg) The goal of science is to ...

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT BOLTLUBE??? While talking to the distributors at the SHOT Show (America's biggest vendor gun show), one question always came up. Back during WWII, Enrico Fermi and Joseph Lencki (yes, Fermi from the Manhattan Project) developed zMAX at the Dodge Chicago Plant where the 2,200 horsepower, 18 cylinder B-29 Superfortress engines were being developed. The product has been sold over time as Lenckite and Speedway Cocktail. What they figured out was how to take really high quality mineral oil, and break the molecules into little bitty pieces. This allows the oil to PENETRATE the metal pores, as the pores open and close with temperature changes. Forward to the mid 1990's, Slick 50 and the rest, including zMAX were sued by the FTC for making claims that their products would "penetrate the metal", "improve gas mileage", "reduce friction and wear", "reduce carbon and deposit buildup", and more. ONLY zMAX was able to prove to them that the product DOES WHAT THEY CLAIM. See their site for det ...

Hi! I'm Claire and I am majoring in international relations and social policy in James Madison. I am taking this course because it seemed like a good way to learn more about physics, which I enjoyed taking in high school. I hope to learn more about physics in a more conceptual, "Big Questions" way because my previous physics education was very specific and practical. The first physicist I ever heard of was Enrico Fermi, because I live very close to Fermilab, a laboratory near Batavia, Illinois.
