Enrico Fermi byl italský fyzik známý svými výzkumy jaderných reakcí, kvantové teorie, částicové fyziky a statistické mechaniky. Jako jeden z mála fyziků se zabýval výzkumem jak teoretickým tak i experimentálním. Zkoumal vlastnosti beta- a gama- záření. Podílel se na vývoji prvního jaderného reaktoru Chicago Pile-1. Podal několik patentů v oblasti využití jaderné energie a byl oceněn Nobelovou cenou za práci o indukované radioaktivitě. Bývá označován jako jeden z „otců“ atomové bomby. Je také autorem tzv. Fermiho paradoxu, který si klade otázku kolik je ve vesmíru inteligentních mimozemských civilizací.

Citáty Enrico Fermi

„The fact that no limits exist to the destructiveness of this weapon makes its very existence and the knowledge of its construction a danger to humanity as a whole. It is necessarily an evil thing considered in any light.“

— Enrico Fermi
Context: Such a weapon goes far beyond any military objective and enters the range of very great natural catastrophes. By its very nature it cannot be confined to a military objective but becomes a weapon which in practical effect is almost one of genocide. It is clear that the use of such a weapon cannot be justified on any ethical ground which gives a human being a certain individuality and dignity even if he happens to be a resident of an enemy country...
