"It's true that one of the possibilities in building a hydrogen bomb concerns deuterium," the scientist said.
His words were broken off by the tremendous roar and concussion of the hydrogen bomb.
This one, however, was carrying the complex mechanism of a hydrogen bomb.
The laboratory probably wasn't adequate to produce a hydrogen bomb, Wayne realized; but he wasn't at all sure.
Force of a hydrogen bomb—forty thousand innocent people gone in a microsecond.
It lacked the wholesale devastation of the atomic bomb and the hydrogen bomb, but it was marked by infinite cruelties.
"That rocket was built around a hydrogen bomb," O'Donnell said, his strong face triumphant.
|hydrogen bomb |
An extremely destructive bomb whose explosive power is derived from the energy released when hydrogen atoms are fused to form helium. This atomic fusion reaction is the same reaction that takes place in stars like the Sun, where the pressure of gravity forces hydrogen atoms to fuse; a hydrogen bomb uses the force of an atomic explosion (the fission reaction exploited in atomic bombs) to compress the hydrogen to the point where fusion takes place. Hydrogen bombs are many times more powerful than atomic bombs.
