It weighed 200 pounds and had a yield of 100-1000 tons of TNT. It had neutron bomb capacity. From ultrarunner and Los Alamos physicist Blake Wood: "The idea behind a "neutron bomb" is that the lethal radius for the neutron radiation is greater than for the blast, at least for tanks. It was intended to stop a Soviet tank invasion of Western Europe without blowing up all the towns in between, on friendly territory, hence the relatively low yield. It still would have done a lot of damage, but less than a higher yield weapon that relied solely on blast effects." In the T-building, during cleanup sometimes parts of floors had to be cut away because they were radioactive. Picture of workers in protective suits they wore. This worker is being scanned for radioactivity. The Faraday Cage I spoke about. Glove boxes, where workers could handle dangerous materials. Katherine Switzer Click to Download
