It makes me sad that the world continues to make and keep nuclear weapons. This week North Korea claimed to have detonated the most powerful kind of nuclear weapon: a hydrogen bomb.

Researchers have been looking at data to see whether this is fact or fiction. An unusual earthquake showed that there was some kind of nuclear explosion, but also that it was probably too small to be an H-bomb.

Anyone having this kind of devastating technology terrifies me.

Gases leaking from the bomb's test site could be used to confirm whether or not it was a genuine H-bomb.
