[ #14623 ]
Dr. Ed "Johnny H-bomb" Teller has died at age 95. I've seen a number of interviews with Teller where he justifies not only the original research to build nuclear weapons ("we were in a race with the Nazis"), but also continuing research to create the even more devistating hydrogen bomb (as a deterent to a first strike and for the pure research value). In later years, he supported Reagan's SDI "star wars" plan to militarize space. Dr. Strangelove was remarkably similar to Teller. For better and for worse, Teller's influence on history is pronounced.
