Going Nuclear – Nuclear Science – Part 3 – Plutonium Implosion
The Manhattan project investigated Uranium and Plutonium devices and technical problems with the Plutonium forced the development of a much more complex, and ultimately more efficient system which used implosion to assemble the critical mass.
