This review article focuses on the role of off-line mass spectrometry in the development of nuclear fission. The article highlights the application of that technique in the Manhattan Project and post-World War II development of peaceful uses of nuclear energy. It discusses the work of Alfred Nier prior to and during the Manhattan Project, the distribution of isotopes in fission product chains, and the implications of studies of naturally occurring nuclear reactions for radioactive waste disposal in geological repositories.
