Ida Noddack

Born 25 Feb 1896; died 1979 .German chemist who co-discovered (1925) element 75, rhenium, which they named after the Rhine River. They found trace amounts in the mineral columbite. She was working with Walter Noddack, her future husband (1926). They were also trying to find element 43, which they called masurium, but announcement of that find was mistaken. She commented on the possibility of fission upon hearing the reports of Fermi's 1934 observations of the neutron bombardment of uranium. Her idea remained dormant. However, when Frisch, five years afterwards, presented the same idea, it became accepted. In photochemistry, the Noddacks worked on sensitizing coloring substances, the photochemistry of the human eye and other subjects.

Little Johnny raises his hand and says, “Obviously past tense, Miss.”
