- Program Description
Dr. Edward Teller has been praised as one of the great scientific geniuses of our time. He has also been called the most dangerous scientist in the country. NOVA traces Teller's career from the time of his youth in Hungary to his emergence as a brilliant science student in 1920s Germany, where he studied with many of the foremost physicists of the time. When Hitler came to power, Teller fled to the U.S. to continue his career; still only in his twenties, he already enjoyed a reputation of international stature.
