But Where Is The Lumber Jack?

a: Fission ~
b: a logger

What: "Very simply, fission is like a logger. It splits a massive element into fragments, releasing energy in the process. Otto Frisch named the effect "nuclear fission: because of its resemblance to biological fission -- cell division. Fission itself is a nuclear process which does not usually occur naturally in nature. (That we are aware of.)"
