This black and white photograph of scientist Edward Teller measures 2.5" x 3.5" and is signed by Teller. Teller, a Hungarian born scientist, fled Germany in 1934 and in 1941 emigrated to the United States where he joined America's best physicists in the top secret Manhattan Project. Their mission: to develop the atom bomb before the Germans did. In 1945, the atom bomb was successfully tested at Alamogordo, New Mexico and within weeks of the first test, America's bombs had destroyed the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Teller rightly or wrongly is often referred to as "the father of Hydrogen Bomb." He died in 2003 at the age of 95. Bookseller Inventory #
