World Changing Event: November 1, 1952 – Nuclear testing: Operation Ivy: The United States successfully detonates the first hydrogen bomb, codenamed “Mike”, at Eniwetok Atoll in the Marshall Islands in the central Pacific Ocean, with a yield of 10.4 megatons. This was the start of the nuclear arms race. The first Ivy shot, Mike, was the first successful full-scale test of a multi-megaton thermonuclear weapon (“hydrogen bomb”) yielding 10.4 megatons, almost 500 times the bomb dropped on Nagasaki. The second test, King, fired the largest nuclear weapon to date using only nuclear fission yielded 500 kilotons, 25-40 times more than the nuclear weapons dropped during World War II.
