The atomic bomb

Edward Teller, was "the father of the of they hydrogen bomb". Teller migrated from Budapest Hungary to United States in the early process of the Manhattan project. He was charged with developing the first atomic bomb. Teller was meeting with his friend Enrico Fermi, Fermisuggested that perhaps a weapon based on nuclear fission could be used to set off an even larger nuclear fusion reaction. Teller was fasicnated by the idea and presented this idea at Berkeley session. He disscussed about the fission weapon to a fusion weapon. Days before dropping the bomb teller thought that the actual use of the bomb should be use on actual Japan. He told Robert J. Oppenheimer. Robert told teller that the fate of the nation is a dissicion for the politicans in Washington. So Teller wrote a letter to them expressing his believe in the use of the bomb.
