The induced Nuclear Fission was discovered by Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann in December 1938. It was explained by Lise Meitner and Otto Frisch on the basis of Liquid Drop Model. Since their papers were published in 1939 we may say that officially in 2014 we celebrate the 75th anniversary. After a brief historical account we remind about the 50th anniversary. The International Conference in Mumbai on 75-years of Nuclear Fission is also presented.
