Vijay SKM Daniel Narea
Who Truman approved the development of the bomb when the U.S.A. lost nuclear supremacy as the U.S.S.R. detonated its first atomic bomb Edward Teller and Stanislaw Ulam were the main contributors to the Hydrogen bomb efforts
What Hydrogen bombs are a combined fission- fusion nuclear device where Hydrogen molecules combine under high temperatures to form Helium Also called the Thermonuclear Bomb The most destructive weapon
When First developed and tested in 1952 (U.S.A. “Mike”) Second tested in 1953 (U.S.S.R. "Joe-4")
Why The U.S.A claims that the reason they built the Hydrogen bomb was in hopes that it would be a deterrent from other countries attacking. The U.S.S.R. had similar reasons The Idea was the basis for the cold war and the arms race
Effect The Hydrogen Bomb causes mass destruction and nuclear radiation which can be responsible for many deaths The development of these bombs now causes tensions and fear of nuclear war between countries that have them.
The Hollywood Ten
Who A group of ten screenwriters, actors, directors, musicians, and other entertainment professionals who were blacklisted in the entertainment world for their communist beliefs. Alvah Bessie, Herbert Biberman, Lester Cole, Edward Dmytryk, Ring Lardner, Jr., John Howard Lawson, Albert Maltz, Samuel Ornitz, Adrian Scott, and Dalton Trumbo.
What/When In 1947 the House Committee on Un- American Activities accused ten Hollywood actors, screenwriters, and directors of having communist ties. They were summoned for questioning and later held in contempt of the court for refusing to answer if they were communist or not.
Effect other members of the film industry with alleged communist ties were later banned from working for the big movie studios. Studio executives did not want their business to be associated with radical politics in the minds of the movie-going public and therefore agreed that they would not employ the Hollywood Ten or anyone else suspected of being affiliated with the Communist Party.
Who/What Julius Rosenberg and Ethel Rosenberg were a husband and a wife convicted for conspiracy to commit espionage. They worked for the Soviet Union by feeding them classified information about the atomic bomb. The FBI had arrested multiple spies but the Rosenbergs were the only ones who did not offer up a confession, resulting in their execution.
When/Effect In 1953 the Rosenbergs were transferred to Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining New York. On June 19 th of that year they were both executed for their crimes, a first in United States history. About a month prior to the execution on May 10th, Mother’s Day, pamphlets were handed out to street-goers to protest the upcoming execution.
