North Korea claims nuclear fusion technology to master the West lead to speculation Korea (graph)

recent tightening of the Korean peninsula, South Korea, “ship” sinking mystery has not yet opened, on May 12 and exposed North Korea “to grasp the fusion technology “shocking news. As the nuclear fusion technology is the basis for developing the hydrogen bomb, the West and South Korean media have speculated that North Korea wants the nuclear field “to go further.” Although this speculation is purely ridiculous, but the mysterious nuclear or hydrogen bomb to re-enter people’s imagination.
hydrogen bomb How to Make
South Korea, “Chosun Ilbo,” May 12, citing North Korea, “Rodong Sinmun” reported that North Korean scientists to 100 percent of their technology, finally succeeded in getting a nuclear fusion technology, creating a unique thermonuclear reactor, and completed basic research related to nuclear fusion. The successful fusion, the DPRK has opened a new breakthrough in energy development for cutting-edge scientific and technological development opens a new chapter. This is a Korean national in the field of scientific research published in “phenomenal progress” of news, has forced South Korea and some Western countries heart startled. Because in addition to power generation, nuclear fusion technology Another application is to create the hydrogen bomb.
principle according to the release of nuclear energy, nuclear fission and nuclear fusion of the points, fission-type nuclear weapon is the atomic bomb, hydrogen bomb is a fusion-type nuclear weapon. Deuterium is a hydrogen bomb of raw materials (mass up to 2 times the normal hydrogen) and tritium (mass of ordinary hydrogen three times), more than 100 million degrees Celsius at high temperature and pressure conditions, fusion occurs these materials, while a burst of tremendous energy. Because such a high detonation conditions, some even use the atomic bomb hydrogen bomb as a “fuse.”
the early 1950s to late 1960s, the United States, the former Soviet Union, Britain, China and France have successfully developed the hydrogen bomb, and the armed forces. From the atomic bomb explosion, and then exploded a hydrogen bomb, the shortest span of time record holder in China, only two years and eight months. Nuclear power in the development of the hydrogen bomb, there is a sound basis for supporting the nuclear industry, nuclear technology and has a large number of top talent, and some lack of complete industrial system of the nuclear countries to create the hydrogen bomb in a short time is not easy.
the world’s most terrible bomb
compared with the atomic bomb, hydrogen bomb is much more to terror. The power of the atomic bomb is usually a few hundred to tens of thousands tons of TNT equivalent, the power of the hydrogen bomb can be as large as several thousand tons of TNT equivalent. During the Cold War, the United States and the former Soviet Union, although several tests an atomic bomb, hydrogen bomb tests but both countries are more cautious.
1961, the former Soviet Tu-95 “Bear” type of strategic bombers in the Novaya Zemlya test site has dropped a weight 26 tons, 50 million tons of TNT equivalent of the “Big Ivan” hydrogen bomb. Nuclear explosion that produced a mushroom cloud up to 70 kilometers, three times around the globe electromagnetic disturbances, explosion point 4000 km away from the aircraft, missiles, radar and communications equipment are strongly affected. Soviet military communications were interrupted for one hour, the U.S. military has been spread to its rival, the North American Aerospace Defense Command’s most damaged electronic systems, radar can not operate, breakdown in communications. Given the power of large equivalent hydrogen bomb terrorist, then none of the countries had such a crazy experiment.
for the small size of the country, tests a hydrogen bomb is a “dangerous game.” South Korea’s Seoul National University nuclear engineering professor at Hong phase Hay on speculation, said: “North Korea should just create a ‘thermonuclear fusion reactor’ and conducted a test.” Hydrogen bomb of the power of the atomic bomb dozens or even hundreds of times, with this in mind, North Korea Unfortunately, no suitable testing ground. No matter what the outside world speculation, hydrogen bombs are suffering from problems of the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue “can not shirk.”
