Andrei Sakharov, Russian physicist, dissident, academic, activist, Nobel Prize laureate (May 21, 1921 - December 14, 1989) was born Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov in Moscow, Russian SFSR. He became a leading world figure for disarmament, peace and human rights. As head of the Soviet Union's nuclear weapons development program, he became renowned as the designer of the Soviet Union's RDS-37, a codename for Soviet development of thermonuclear weapons. His advocacy of civil liberties and civil reforms, which earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975, put him at odds with the Soviet state, resulting in his persecution and internal exile, which only ended when Premier Gorbachev summoned him back to Moscow. He was elected to the Congress Of People's Deputies, and died most likely of cardiac arrhythmia at the age of 68 while taking a nap on the eve of his delivering to the congress a speech with his proposal for a Soviet bill of rights. He was interred in the Vostryakovskoye Cemetery in Moscow. The Sakharov Prize, which is awarded annually by the European Parliament for people and organizations dedicated to human rights and freedoms, is named in his honor. He is considered to be an archetype of the best traditions of the Russian intellectual.
