brintbombe ; fusionsbombe

Eksploderende fusionsbombe
Fransk: Bombe, hvis sprængladning består af uran og brint. Ved eksplosion frigøres store energimængder ved processer, hvor brintkerner sammensluttes til heliumkerner i fussions-processer. Brintbomben udvikles først i USA og Sovjetunionen under den kolde krig. Japanske fiskere omkommer på grund af radioaktiv bestråling efter et amerikansk brintbombeforsøg i 1954, hvilket dokumenteres i The Fifth Lucky Dragon Dispaly Hosue, Tokio.

'A pit is a nuclear weapon component, a hollow plutonium shell that is imploded with conventional explosives to create a nuclear explosion that triggers the rest of the weapon.
During the Cold War, the Rocky Flats Plant (CO) manufactured as many as 2,000 pits per year. On June 6, 1989, armed agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Environmental Protection Agency raided Rocky Flats to investigate suspected environmental crimes.1 As a result, DOE first suspended pit production at Rocky Flats later that year, subsequently halted it permanently, and eventually dismantled the plant and remediated the site.'

'It has long been supposed that the Teller-illam invention of February 1951, that made the construction of a full-scale fusion device feasible could be deduced from a careful analysis of the debris that scatters worldwide after an atmospheric test. This was part of the theme of an article in the January/February 1990 issue of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists written by Daniel Hirsch and William G. Mathews. Their conclusion, arrived at to a large degree through interviews with Hans Bethe, was that the H-bomb secret was given to the Soviets, not through the spy Klaus Fuchs, but rather by carrying out Mike, the first test of a fusion device based on the Teller-illam ideas. The Bulletin article and an extended version of that paper issued by the Los Angeles based Committee to Bridge the Gap argue that the observation of the very high neutron fluencies in the explosion, which can be derived from the fallout composition, would lead a competent scientist to the trick.'
