BECOME A MEMBER OF THE SPIRIT OF ALOHA TEMPLE
On December 10, 2018 in Honor of the 70 th Anniversary of
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Ratified by the United Nations on December 10, 1048,
The Spirit of Aloha Temple Launches:
The Albert Einstein and Lisa Meitner Initiative
For the Responsible use of Nuclear Energy.
Albert Einstein and Lise Mietner were the father and mother of nuclear energy. This fund is designed to fulfill their vision for their gift of nuclear energy to humanity to be used solely for peaceful purposes.
In 1905 Albert Einstein revealed his famous equation showing that energy is equivalent to mass times the square of the speed of light. This was a theoretical discovery that had no immediate practical application.
In 1938, Lise Meitner took Einstein’s theoretical understanding and applied it to physics by designing an experiment that split the uranium atom thereby unleashing for humanity the gift of nuclear energy. Meitner applied into nature the wisdom that Einstein had revealed. It was Lise Meitner who named this process Nuclear Fission. She opened the door to The Nuclear Age.
This discovery happened at the beginning of World War II when the fascist regime in Germany would not allow Jews to be professors in Germany. Both Einstein and Meitner were forced to escape from Germany. Because of their religion, they were denied their Nobel prizes for their discoveries. Instead the Nobel Prizes for the discovery of
nuclear fission were given only to Meitner’s German laboratory partners, Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassman, who had carried out the experiments on neutron-bombarded uranium that had been designed by Meitner.
We hereby request that The Nobel Prize Committee award these Nobel Prizes posthumously to Albert Einstein and Lisa Meitner for their parts in the discovery of nuclear fission. We also request that the prize funds for these awards be donated to The Albert Einstein and Lisa Meitner Initiative for the Responsible use of Nuclear Energy, to be used to help see that their intentions for nuclear energy to be used solely for non-violent purposes are fulfilled.
On behalf of this initiative we also support a universal treaty for keeping Space free of violence; so that weapons may not be put into Space nor satellites targeted. We aspire for a world that is cooperative, non-violent and free of weapons of mass destruction.
Respectfully submitted by Fredrick Swaroop Honig,
Trustee of the Spirit of Aloha Temple, and grand-nephew of Lise Meitner.
