How to Build a Nuclear Bomb

Well, actually I do now havew machine readable copies of 'Basement Nukes' and 'Kitchen Improvised Plastic Explosives' if anyone wants them....

Really though, nukes are a cinch. Eight kilos of U-235, 6 kilos of plastique (C-4), a piece of drainpipe and a detonator, though of course you do need a PP3 battery to detonate it which will cost about two quid.

Where x is C-4, U is Uranium 235, and = is Uranium 238. You see, the U-238 will act as a neutron reflector to enhance the blast, and in addition a fair proportion will be converted to plutonium and enhance the fallout/.

Anyway, that's about 10 kilotons worth. Enough to keep any terrorist group happy. The main problem is cost, about $50million per kg. Still, in 1987 police in Khartoum found 30 kg of plutonium in a wharehouse, about 100 kts.

Think I'll make one one day,
Ratty 1989.
