Caption: Andrei Sakharov. Historical portrait of Russian nuclear physicist Andrei Sakharov (1921-89). He is speaking in 1989 before President Gorbachov (upper right) and the Soviet Congress of People's Deputies. Sakharov helped develop the first Soviet hydrogen bomb, successfully tested in August 1953. His doubts concerning the safety of nuclear tests, however, led him to campaign for a nuclear test- ban and improved civil rights. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975. In 1980, he was sent into internal exile, released by Gorbachov in 1986.
