On the eve of World War II, he obtained an American visa and left Lviv at the last moment, taking his younger brother, Adam, with him. In the United States, he joined a group of scientists working at the famous nuclear research centre in Los Alamos, where, together with Edward Teller, he conducted successful research on the construction of a hydrogen bomb.
