November 1, 1952: First H-Bomb is Tested
On this day in 1952, the world’s first hydrogen bomb “Ivy Mike” was detonated by the United States on the Eniwetok atoll in the Pacific.
Edward Teller and Stanislaw Ulam were among the scientists who developed the H-bomb, formally known as a thermonuclear bomb. This hydrogen bomb test led to the U.S. gaining a temporary lead in its nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union.
