Study on 4th Generation Nuclear weapons
Over at Cryptome I found a really neat 1997 Swiss study (translated from earlier Chinese and Russian works!) on future super weapons titled: “The physical principles of thermonuclear explosives, internal confinement fusion, and the quest of fourth generation nuclear weapons”
Sounds catchy right? (Go download it fools, its free!)
Well the first hundred pages or so is all background stuff from the 1930s to now-ish.
The really next-level stuff starts on page 103 (of 236) and includes discussion on theoretical subcritical and microfission explosives, transplutonic and super-heavy elements, antimatter (antimatter!) nuclear isomers, super-explosives and metallic hydrogen bombs, and so forth.
If nothing else, you sci-fi writers out there can have a ball with the possibilities. Remember, its best to be a Vulcan in the streets and a Klingon in the sheets

About laststandonzombieislandLet me introduce myself. I am a bit of a conflict junkie. I am fascinated by war and warfare, assassination, personal protection and weaponry ranging from spud guns and flame throwers to thermonuclear bombs and Soviet-trained Ebola monkeys. In short, if it’s violent or a tool to create violence it is kind of my thing. I have written a few thousand articles on the dry encyclopedia side for such websites as Guns.com, University of Guns, Outdoor Hub, Tac-44, History Times, Big Game Hunter, Glock Forum, Firearms Talk.com, and Combat Forums; as well as for print publications like England Expects, and Strike First Strike Fast. Several magazines such as Sea Classics, Military Historian and Collector, Mississippi Sportsman and Warship International have carried my pieces. Additionally I am on staff as a naval consultant and writer for Eye Spy Intelligence Magazine. Currently I am working on several book projects including an alternative history novel about the US-German War of 1916, and a biography of Southern gadfly and soldier of fortune Bennett Doty. My first novel, about the coming zombie apocalypse was released in 2012 by Necro Publications and can be found at Amazon.com as was the prequel, Chimera-44. I am currently working on book two of that series: "Pirates of the Zombie Coast." In my day job I am a contractor for the U.S. federal government in what could best be described as the ‘Force Protection’ field. In this I am an NRA-certified firearms, and less-than-lethal combat instructor.
