He left Europe in the 1930s because of the Nazi threat. During World War II he worked at Los Alamos on the development of the atom bomb. In the late 1940s & early 1950s he championed development of the H-bomb & achieved the crucial technical breakthrough that made the bomb possible. The first H-bomb was exploded in the South Pacific in 1952.
