Even in 1924, Einstein and the Indian scientist SN Bose studied the behavior of atoms at shallow temperatures; this is known as Bose–Einstein Thermo Dynamics. In Germany in 1939, the German physicists O. Hahn and F. Stresemann discovered the fission of uranium nuclei under the action of neutrons. Less than a month after this great news reached all the leading physical laboratories, already at a conference in Washington, scientists already half-jokingly and half-seriously talked about the release of nuclear energy.
