Basics of Atomic Weapons

Why This Blog

I have always had some fascination in how atomic weapons worked. I have a degree in physics and found that the actual application of nuclear understanding very exciting, almost as a confirmation of the accuracy of our understanding of the universe. I have a very basic knowledge of the concepts involved with nuclear weapons, and wanted a place to note the basics and grow my understanding.

Since the material I am posting is from publicly available books and websites, this should not pose any type of risk of disclosing any dangerous information. Again, I only enjoy the discussion of the concepts and ideas, of how these devices work.
