Even though the fundamental assumptions were verified in extensive laboratory work, no system level test was carried out as the design was so certain to work. In addition, the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima used all the existing highly purified 235 U, and so there was no 235 U available for such a system level test. 13). It was conducted by the United States on 16 July 1945, on the White Sands Proving Ground. Trinity was a test of an implosion-design plutonium device. The Trinity detonation was equivalent to the explosion of around 20 kt of TNT (trinitrotoluene) and is usually considered the beginning of the Nuclear Age.

Also known as a hydrogen weapon. Radiological warfare: any form of warfare involving deliberate radiation poisoning, without relying on nuclear fission or nuclear fusion. , city). Nuclear fission: A nuclear reaction in which the nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts, often producing free neutrons and lighter nuclei, which may eventually produce photons (in the form of gamma rays). Fission of heavy elements is an exothermic reaction that can release large amounts of energy both as electromagnetic radiation and as kinetic energy of the fragments Nuclear fusion: The process by which multiple like-charged atomic nuclei join together to form a heavier nucleus.
