Neutron Bomb

How the deadliest bomb in the world almost came to be

Neutron Bomb J. Robert Oppenheimer was known as the father of the atomic bomb, Edward Teller was known as the father of the Hydrogen Bomb and Sam Cohen was known as the father of the Neutron Bomb.

In the late 1950s, an idea was conceived of a bomb which would maximize damage to people, but minimize damage to buildings and vital infrastructure: perfect for an occupying army. This is the story of a man and his bomb. A melding of world events and scientific discovery inspire the motivations of the self-professed creator of the Neutron Bomb—one of the most-hated nuclear weapons ever invented.
