3: Rosenbergs | The Rosenberg’s were two soviet spies that were born in U.S.A. Julius Rosenberg was born on May 12, 1918, in New York and Ethel Greenglass was born on September 28, 1915, also in New York. Julius was graduated from electrical engineering, and Ethel was an actress and singer. In 1942 they both became full members of an American communist party. On 1950 Julius was arrested for spying. After that Ethel’s younger brother confessed on passing information to the USSR then David Greenglass. He became a key witness helping uncover the truth of the Rosenberg’s. He stated that Ethel had written notes to the USSR telling U.S. nuclear secretes helping Russia develop the A-bomb. They were also trialed for the deaths of Korean lives because some of the information that they had sent had helped Russia build the A-bomb. On March 29, 1951 The Rosenberg’s were convicted and sentenced to death by the electric chair. The Rosenberg’s died on June 19th of 1953.

5: H- Bomb | There are three names for these nuclear bomb, H-bomb, thermonuclear bomb, and hydrogen bomb. The Hydrogen Bomb is a nuclear bomb that was developed in the 1950s. Its first creator was Edward teller and other American scientists; they were from the United States. The first bomb was tested in Eniwetok, USA on November 1st 1952. The second bomb was tested by the Russians or the USSR in 1953. After that Great Britain, France, and China have also exploded thermonuclear bombs, and these five nations comprise the so-called nuclear club. The hydrogen bomb functions by fusion or the joining together of light elements to heavier elements. When the H-bomb explodes it creates an extremely hot zone by the center of it. So by this zone all the matter vaporizes leaving gases of very high pressure. It is called a thermonuclear bomb because the change in extreme air pressure creates an over pressure leaving a wave of energy that is responsible for major part of the attack.
