Not to nit pick.... his name is Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov.

Quote:
After World War II, he researched cosmic rays. In mid-1948 he participated in the Soviet atomic bomb project under Igor Kurchatov and Igor Tamm. Sakharov's study group at FIAN in 1948 came up with a second concept in August–September 1948.[10] Adding a shell of natural, unenriched uranium around the deuterium would increase the deuterium concentration at the uranium-deuterium boundary and the overall yield of the device, because the natural uranium would capture neutrons and itself fission as part of the thermonuclear reaction. This idea of a layered fission-fusion-fission bomb led Sakharov to call it the sloika, or layered cake.[10] The first Soviet atomic device was tested on August 29, 1949. After moving to Sarov in 1950, Sakharov played a key role in the development of the first megaton-range Soviet hydrogen bomb using a design known as Sakharov's Third Idea in Russia and the Teller–Ulam design in the United States. Before his Third Idea, Sakharov tried a "layer cake" of alternating layers of fission and fusion fuel. The results were disappointing, yielding no more than a typical fission bomb. However the design was seen to be worth pursuing because deuterium is abundant and uranium is scarce, and he had no idea how powerful the US design was. Sakharov realised that in order to cause the explosion of one side of the fuel to symmetrically compress the fusion fuel, a mirror could be used to reflect the radiation. The details had not been officially declassified in Russia when Sakharov was writing his memoirs, but in the Teller–Ulam design, soft X-rays emitted by the fission bomb were focused onto a cylinder of lithium deuteride to compress it symmetrically. This is called radiation implosion. The Teller–Ulam design also had a secondary fission device inside the fusion cylinder to assist with the compression of the fusion fuel and generate neutrons to convert some of the lithium to tritium, producing a mixture of deuterium and tritium.[11][12] Sakharov's idea was first tested as RDS-37 in 1955. A larger variation of the same design which Sakharov worked on was the 50 Mt Tsar Bomba of October 1961, which was the most powerful nuclear device ever detonated.

Damn Russia. Why?

Why can't the leaders of the World sit down and create a sustainable economic system where war is obsolete because positive economics has made enough money for everyone and especially for the people in power. If China, Russia, India, USA and the EU are trading goods, ideas and services and getting paid, why kill each other with crazy weapons?

Why is Russia making even stronger nuclear weapons. No need. It's like saying that this pure grain 198 proof alcohol doesn't have enough alcohol and it needs to be bumped up. All these nations with nukes, no real reason to improve on the nukes, it's a non starter, unless for some reason the nations want to save money on missles to destroy say, Michigan with one bomb except for just Detroit (and why waste a bomb on Detroit?).

A lot of these international issues are not that difficult. Some are but not unworkable. The most difficult is North Korea. They need to go some kind of way. I say offer to bribe the bastard with $10 Billion dollars to go and help to remain anonymous. Pakistan and India, come on guys, really? Fighting over icebergs and shit? The Middle East. Let the Jews have Isreal, make Jerusalem an international UN governed city where all peoples and religions can feel safe and go from there. China, why do you want Taiwan? I have been to Taiwan.

The human race is going to blow itself up over greed, petty disputable property rights and a deadly dick wagging contest. Enough is enough!

Well let me nitpick a little more. Your title:
Russia making 100-megaton torpedo with Uranium they got from Hillary
You poor bloody fool. The US imports reactor fuel from Russia. Can you understand that?

And the Russians have not developed the uranium rights they acquired. Can you understand that?

And you no why? They have no need to. They have plenty of uranium. Kazakhstan and Russia are members of an economic union. Kazakhstan produces more uranium than any other country. Three of the world's ten biggest uranium mines are in Kazakhstan. Can you understand that?

One more nit to pick. The McArthur River, Canada, mine is the largest in the world. It alone produced 13 percent of the world's output of uranium. Can you understand that?

You bloody morons made an issue out of nothing, and your thread is steaming bullshit, but I understand you've got to get your daily fix of Hillary hate somewhere.

I'm sure you can understand that.
Thanks from skews13 and RNG

Read Gulag Araepelgo if you dare. I misspelled islands but it is a long non-fiction book. When you get done with that read Conversations with the Enemy which is a short book mostly fiction.

But Russia may not have enough Uranium to make another thousand 100MT torpedoes which is why they need more.

PS 1 single 100MT torpedo hitting Manhattan basically not only destroys NY city, but a large chunk of NY state.

But Russia isn't building a 100 MT torpedo.
Because it would be stupid.

I have read it TS. I haven't read Conversations with the Enemy. I'll take your advice and put it on my reading list. Thanks.

I'm not sure what the issue is, really. After all, we're the first and only country to have ever actually dropped the Bomb on another country. At least these bombs won't kill innocents, just stupid lackeys.

The issue is that this is fake news. This is a story that is rehashed from a 2015 story which itself was rehashed from a Soviet theory in the 1950's.

Big warheads died in the age of Multiple Independently Targetable Reentry Vehicles. The age of smart bombs, cruise missiles, etc, pounded the nails into that coffin. We are now able land a nuclear warhead within 1-4 meters of of a target. Big warheads were wanted when the Soviets did not have the targeting ability of the Americans. Those days are gone. Smith & Wesson made men equal, the leap in computer, GPS, etc, technology also made the Russians more equal.

Why would the Russians build a 100 megaton torpedo when 100 X 1 megaton torpedoes will do 100 times more damage that would spread out throughout our nation and also cripple our fighting forces and their ability to respond?
