Ivy Mike explosion

The Fusion age is here.  Or, more specifically, the nuclear exploding fusion bomb age that is.  Today, in 1952, the United States Military detonated the world’s first thermonuclear weapon, code-named Ivy Mike.  This hydrogen bomb was the first successful test of the design, and ushered in an age of fear.  The US was excited to get this detonated before the Commies in Russia, and we succeeded.  Yay for US.
