Enrico Fermi ( Italian: [enˈriːko ˈfermi]; 29 September 1901 – 28 November 1954) was an Italian and later naturalized American physicist, renowned for being the creator of the world's first nuclear reactor, the Chicago Pile-1, and a member of the Manhattan Project.
Enrico Fermi, Italian-born American scientist who was one of the chief architects of the nuclear age. He developed the mathematical statistics for a large class of subatomic phenomena, explored nuclear transformations caused by neutrons, and directed the first controlled chain reaction involving nuclear fission.
The Nobel Prize in Physics 1938 was awarded to Enrico Fermi "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons"
PhysicistChicago, IL. Enrico Fermi (1901-1954) was an Italian physicist and recipient of the 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics. In 1942, Fermi relocated to the Chicago Met Lab, where he built an experimental reactor pile under Stagg Field at the University of Chicago. Construction was completed on December 1 and the reactor went critical the next day.
Enrico Fermi - Nuclear Physicist, Nobel Prize Winner: Settling first in New York City and then in Leonia, New Jersey, Fermi began his new life at Columbia University, in New York City. Within weeks of his arrival, news that uranium could fission astounded the physics community.
In 1970 came Emilio Segrè's Enrico Fermi, Physicist. Now after a gap of over a quarter-century, two new biographies of Fermi have recently appeared: Gino Segrè and Bettina Hoerlin's The Pope of Physics (2016), and David Schwartz's longer and somewhat more comprehensive The Last Man Who Knew Everything , the subject of this review.

(1901-1954) Who Was Enrico Fermi? Enrico Fermi's early research was in general relativity and quantum mechanics, but he soon focused on the newer field of nuclear physics. He won the Nobel...
The Life of Enrico Fermi. Click for a story about the photograph. On December 2, 1942, Enrico Fermi and his team of scientists harnessed the atom and opened the door to new scientific and technological realms. His achievement allowed the U.S. to produce the atomic bomb that helped end World War II.
Enrico Fermi, (born Sept. 29, 1901, Rome, Italy—died Nov. 28, 1954, Chicago, Ill., U.S.), Italian-born U.S. physicist. As a professor at the University of Rome, he began the work, later fully developed by P.A.M. Dirac , that led to Fermi-Dirac statistics.
