Frightening facts about nuclear weapons exist in today’s world. It is scary to think that several countries have nuclear weapons at their disposal that they would not hesitate to use in certain circumstances. As the world is in the atomic age, the famous quote by George Wald comes to mind: “The only use for an atomic bomb is to keep someone else from using one.”

Both atomic and hydrogen bombs are considered nuclear weapons. An atomic bomb is made up of a nucleus of -235 uranium plus 239 neutrons. The makeup destabilizes atoms and uses gamma rays and thermal energy. A hydrogen bomb requires an atom bomb to start its fuse. It is made from deuterium and tritium and relies on extreme heat from an atomic bomb explosion. This type of bomb is made from fused hydrogen isotopes, can create blindness from a distance, relies on light and heat and gives off a huge blast of explosion as well as a soot cloud when detonated. It is powerful enough to knock down large buildings several miles away.
