Hydrogen Bomb – All you need to know

Hydrogen Bomb is once again in the News with Korea detonating it recently.

It may be claimed that this was for defensive measure, but the repercussions are many.  A Hydrogen bomb is a much more powerful atomic weapon. The energy released in a Hydrogen bomb is several magnitudes higher than an Atom bomb. It can devastate whole cities in one explosion. A Hydrogen bomb derives its energy through the fusion of atoms whereas an Atom bomb derives its energy from fission.
