"Ivy Mike" was the code name given to the very first successful hydrogen
bomb test by the United States. It was part of a greater series of nuclear
tests known as "Operation Ivy". The purpose of these programs was to upgrade
military nuclear weapons as a means to respond to the Soviet Union during
the Cold War. The bomb was detonated on November 1, 1952 over Elugelab
Island, which was once part of the Marshall Islands but was destroyed by the
bomb. It was discovered that "Ivy Mike" yielded 10.4 megatons (TNT power)
which was 500 times more than that of the bomb that destroyed Nagasaki
during the Second World War.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
