What is a hydrogen bomb actually?

 

A hydrogen bomb is a very powerful bomb which can cause massive destruction by rapidly releasing energy from the fusion of two isotopes of hydrogen which are known as deuterium and tritium. As we all know that fusion requires much high temperatures such as surface of sun, this temperature is tried to achieve by an atomic bomb.

The energy released by fusion is much more than the fission process, which is used in the conventional atomic bombs.

Fission process involves splitting of an atom into smaller atoms accompanied by large amount of emitted energy while fusion involves the combining of smaller atoms to form  one big atom which is accompanied by emitted energy many times the same of fission.

Nuclear Powers of the World:

While North Korea makes Miniaturized Hydrogen Bomb, let us examine the international stats.

Since the beginning of nuclear age, eight nations, at least, are known to carry nuclear tests numbering beyond 2,000.

  • The number one on the list is United States, which detonated an atomic bomb on 16th July, 1945 in New Mexico.
  • In the upcoming years, USSR/Russia, United Kingdom, India,China,France,Pakistan, Israel and North Korea built the nuclear weapons.
  • The number of nuclear weapons in these nuclear powers is believed to be between ten to fifteen thousands.
  • India and Pakistan conducted tests in 1998.
  • North Korea continues to carry out nuclear tests after 1999, making it the only nation to carry out ‘declared nuclear tests’ in 2006,09,13 and 2016.
