Instruments of the modern reactor and desk of Otto Hahn succeeded the 1st nuclear Division. Formulas. Otto Hahn, great photo. Otto Hahn in Göttingen as Director of the Max Planck Institute for laboratory tests in the isotope laboratory. Otto Hahn on his desk actuality: "possession of the hydrogen bomb may be necessary, or it is even necessary for the two great powers, because only by that of my opinion, prevents a war. But with this fear of the hydrogen bomb, the fear of the population, in particular of the German population from the threat of the so-called nuclear reactors increases again. And to the peaceful development of nuclear energy, especially in Germany, a difficulty prepares, which is totally unjustified. And therefore you should always refer to the difference: hydrogen bomb - preparation for the war - we all do not want, and also none of the other countries wish, or peaceful application of nuclear energy in nuclear reactors, as they are now also planned in Germany. We need the nuclear reactors for peaceful purposes. We need them for the production of artificial radioactive elements that you can win. And we need them for medicine, for medicine, for agriculture, for the technology. We need they know later because you all for the manufacture and production of electricity-generating plants, that the coal is approaching its end, and that we are instructed in a few decades at the latest on to use other sources of energy than coal and oil."
