North Korea announced on Wednesday, 6th January 2016 that it had successfully carried out its first hydrogen bomb test, a development that, if confirmed, would marking a stunning step forward in its nuclear development. Hydrogen Bomb is a more powerful and dangerous than an atomic bomb.
The United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Wednesday in New York. The closed-door morning talks between the 15 member nations were called by the United Nations and Japan.
In December, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un hinted that his nuclear-armed state has developed a hydrogen bomb, a move that would signal a major step forward in its nuclear weapons capabilities. North Korea has already tested three atom bombs.
The test is not only a grave provocation to our national security but also a threat to our future… and a strong challenge to international peace and stability. China remains the North’s most important ally and trade partner.
The Hydrogen Bomb test, which came just two days before North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s birthday, was initially detected by international seismology monitors as a 5.1-magnitude tremor next to the North’s main Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the northeast of the country.
Why Hydrogen Bomb is More Dangerous than Atom Bomb?:
The energy released in a Hydrogen bomb is several magnitudes higher than an Atom bomb. Hydrogen bombs can destroy whole cities in one explosion.
Hydrogen bombs use the fusion of hydrogen atoms
It is easier to make Hydrogen bombs in small size, so it is easier to place them in missiles.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki both were atomic bombs and till date Hydrogen bombs have never been used in war.
This is the fourth atomic test by North Korea and its first fusion bomb.
