Edward Teller believed it was possible – using weapons sized the same as the earliest air deliverable weapons – to scale the yield up to to 1000 megatons or more – the push however to make the weapons smaller and still deliver multi-megaton yields is where the development program headed . . .
Teller was one of the “group” that could function pretty well without adult supervision – a few of these people were so into the math and theoretical physics that they truly needed help to remember to eat and how to dress themselves – but for the most part they could carry on normal conversations . . .
