  1. plutonium bomb

    A plutonium bomb is a type of nuclear weapon that utilizes the radioactive element plutonium-239 as its core fissionable material. The bomb's detonation involves a chain reaction that occurs when a sufficient quantity of this isotope is assembled to form a supercritical mass, resulting in large amounts of energy being released through nuclear fission. Two notable instances of plutonium bombs are Fat Man, dropped on Nagasaki during WWII, and Trinity, the first nuclear weapon test.
