well it could be done not as a A bomb or a H bomb but as a neutron bomb
Neutron bombs, more formally referred to as "enhanced radiation (ER) warheads", are small thermonuclear weapons in which the burst of neutrons
generated by the fusion reaction is intentionally not absorbed inside the weapon, but allowed to escape. This intense burst of high-energy neutrons is
the principle destructive mechanism. Neutrons are more penetrating than other types of radiation so many shielding materials that work well against
gamma rays do not work nearly as well. The term "enhanced radiation" refers only to the burst of ionizing radiation released at the moment of
detonation, not to any enhancement of residual radiation in fallout.
To produce a 1 kt fusion yield 12.5 g of tritium and 5 g of
deuterium are required.
so yes a baseball/ tennis ball size weapon could be made, short shelf life, and decays at a rate of 5.5% a year. never
say it can not be done, for there are some that will do it just to prove it can be, and they Pakistan are... shall I dare say, fanatic enough to do
it. even a golf ball sized one could be made, big enough to hit a stadium, that is scary in it self.
Now I know there are you that think no not so, or BS.... think out side of the box, the US said the same thing about Russia and China til, they
tested one. The Tars Bomb was though to be fiction til, it was dropped.... 3 stage weapons, ER er Neutron bombs all si fi until proven fact.
