im gonna have to go with no on that one. how would we have known how to manipulate an atom like that. that weapon would be far off from us. i mean hell i can make a nuke out of 500 lbs of tnt and like 15 lbs of uranium but how would i know how to harnes it. no computer to make all those calculations. i dont think id ever come close to makeing anything other then a dirty bomb...
*this is where cia computer hones in on me and starts watching all my bank accounts for transaction to soo if im going to make a bomb...*
U wouldn't have any way to calculate how much damage it does, or how big the area effected by the explosion or radiation would be.
But u would be able to make a powerfull weapon out of it.
I mean, the way a nuclear explosion works is simple. U just have to make a few atoms of uraniun, plutonium or some other similar substance collide, which makes them brake up, and that means that new substances are created. And since uranium etc substances used are radioactive they also emit alpha radiation when they break into smaller pieces. (not 100% sure about this, but that's something like it)
So I think that a powerfull nuclear weapon could be easily created without computers, but as I said it wouldn't be as advanced as they are now.
