#6335. Name the Russian nuclear physicist, Soviet dissident, an activist for disarmament, peace and human rights  (21 May 1921 – 14 December 1989). He became renowned as the designer of the Soviet Union's Third Idea, a codename for Soviet development of thermonuclear weapons. He later became an advocate of civil liberties and civil reforms in the Soviet Union, for which he faced state persecution; these efforts earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975.

#6336.  Name the Italian writer, poet, correspondent of Petrarch, and an important Renaissance humanist (1313 – 21 December 1375). He wrote a number of notable works, including 'The Decameron' and 'On Famous Women'. He wrote his imaginative literature mostly in the Italian vernacular, as well as other works in Latin, and is particularly noted for his realistic dialogue which differed from that of his contemporaries, medieval writers who usually followed formulaic models for character and plot.
