Needs to explain who Lise Meitner is - I'd never heard of her, she's not on a level with the others in public consciousness. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Using Marie Skłodowska Curie (instead of Lise Meitner) would be more understandable - both of them made groundbreaking discoveries in radioactivity research and Ms Curie is definitely more famous than Ms Meitner. But the author probably did not want to join everyone else in using Ms Curie as "the only one token lady scientist" - as discussed in 896: Marie Curie, where Lise Meitner (as well as Emmy Noether) is mentioned.-- 07:52, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Does anyone know who "John and Mildred" might be?
