  2. Nevada test site was created on January 11, 1951 for nuclear testing and on January 27, 1951 was the first nuclear test. • There are two airstrips and 1,100 building on the test site. • There were a total of 928 announced nuclear testing between 1951-1992. • Nevada was the main site where the US tested nuclear weapons. • During a test in the 1950s clouds of smoke could be seen 100 miles away.

  3. H Bomb • The H bomb is 1,000 times stronger than the atomic bomb. • Hungarian-born physicist Edward Teller and Polish-born mathematician Stanisław Ulam, who developed it in 1951. • U.S was the first one to test the H-Bomb in 1952. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNcQX033V_M See a H Bomb being tested.

  4. H Bomb Diagram The energy released by the primary compresses the secondary through the concept of "radiation implosion" which causes the secondary to react.

  5. Ivy Mike • It was detonated on November 1, 1952 by the United States. • It was tested at the Enewetak Atoll. • It was considered the first successful test of a hydrogen bomb. • It was 20.3 feetin height and weighed about 54 tons. • Its nicknamed “Sausage” when it was all assembly. • The device was designed by Richard Garwin.

  6. Castle Bravo • The designer of the bomb was Edward Teller. • It weight 23,500 lb and was 14.95 feet long. • The first U.S. test of a dry fuel thermonuclear hydrogen bomb device detonated on March 1, 1954. • It was tested a Bikini Atoll by the United States as the first test of Operation Castle. • Castle Bravo was about 1,200 times more powerful than the atomic bombs which were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. • There were many Operation Castle bombs I will name some on the next slide.
