Ede Teller

Edward Teller was a Hungarian-American theoretical physicist
who is known colloquially as "the father of the hydrogen bomb",
although he did not care for the title, and was only part of a team who developed the technology.
In 1952, the Teller–Ulam configuration was tested (10.4 megatons).
