Edward Teller was born in Budapest on 15th January 1908.
In 1928 he made a switch from chemistry to mathematics and enrolled in the University of Munich to study under Arnold Sommerfeld.
Teller received his PhD in particle chemistry from the University of Leipzig in 1930 at the age of 22. In 1934 he accepted a teaching position at the University of London.
He became a naturalized U.S citizen in 1941 and remained in America for the rest of his life.
During World War II Edward Teller became a part of the Manhattan project.
He was also known for his extraordinary contributions to nuclear and molecular physics, surface physics and spectroscopy.
Since 1950 Teller was an active campaigner for civil defense. The first thermonuclear device was exploded in November, 1952.
In 1953 he was appointed professor of physics at the University of California at Berkeley and associate director of Livermore Lab.
In 1975 Edward Teller was named director emeritus of Livermore. He received the Albert Einstein Award, the National Medal of Science award the Enrico Fermi Award.
He was honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom less than two months before his death. Edward Teller died in Stanford California at the age of 95.
