Here, for the first time, in a brilliant, panoramic portrait by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb, is the definitive, often shocking story of the politics and the science behind the development of the hydrogen bomb and the birth of the Cold by: Not a first book on the Manhattan project, but interesting and personal account of 4 pioneers.

Building the bomb was about fear of antisemitism combined with incredible scientific talent and the enormous physical resources of the WW2 USA. It was about fear that the Germans, lead by Heisenberg, would do it first/5().

"The Making of the Atomic Bomb" is a richly detailed epic, a table-shaking beast of a book that frequently sent me on evening walks to ponder and process the last few chapters I'd read. This is more than just a book about Hiroshima, Oppenheimer, and the Manhattan Project.

Nuclear weapons are far more destructive than any conventional (non-nuclear) weapon. They are often called atomic bombs or hydrogen bombs.

The energy released by nuclear weapons is measured in tons, kilotons (thousands of tons), or megatons (millons of tons) of TNT. In international standard units (SI), one ton of TNT is equal to × 10 9.

The bomb design is based on a bomb casing containing implosion fission bomb and a cylinder casing of U (tamper). Within the tamper is the 6LiD (fuel) and a hollow rod of Pu in the center of the cylinder. Separating the cylinder from the implosion bomb is a shield of U and plastic foam that fills the remaining space in the bomb casing.

After World War II, the Atomic Energy Commission was established and later the International Atomic Energy Agency. Research and development efforts led to the deployment of the first nuclear power plants. This chapter ends by addressing the controversies surrounding nuclear energy in the late twentieth century.

Naming. Physicist Robert Serber named the first two atomic bomb designs during World War II based on their shapes: Thin Man and Fat "Thin Man" was a long, thin device and its name came from the Dashiell Hammett detective novel and series of movies about The Thin "Fat Man" was round and fat so it was named after Kasper Gutman, a rotund.

Atomic bombs are weapons that get their explosive energy from fission reactions. Thermonuclear weapons, or hydrogen bombs, rely on a combination of nuclear fission and nuclear fusion.

1 Review. For forty years the Soviet-American 5/5(1). A hydrogen bomb and an atomic bomb are both types of nuclear weapons, but the two devices are very different from each other. In a nutshell, an atomic bomb is a fission device, while a hydrogen bomb uses fission to power a fusion reaction.

In other words, an atomic bomb can be used as a trigger for a hydrogen bomb. This spellbinding book answers these questions by tracing the history of Soviet nuclear policy from developments in physics in the s to the testing of.
