Production code 503..

LOST + Jughead' ABC HQ ..

The Mark 16 nuclear bomb was a large thermonuclear bomb (hydrogen bomb), based on the design of the Ivy Mike, the first thermonuclear device ever test fired.. The Mark 16 is more properly designated TX-16/EC-16 as it only existed in Experimental/Emergency Capability (EC) versions..This required both a considerable reduction in weight of the explosive package and the replacement of the elaborate cryogenic system with Dewar flasks for replenishing boiled-off deuterium...The TX-16 was scheduled to be tested as the Castle Yankee "Jughead" device until the overwhelming success of the Castle Bravo "Shrimp" test device rendered it obsolete...

A view of the Sausage device casing..

The 82-ton "Mike" device was essentially a building that resembled a factory rather than a weapon.. It has been reported that Soviet engineers derisively referred to Mike as a "thermonuclear installation"..At its center, a very large cylindrical thermos flask or cryostat, held the cryogenic deuterium fusion fuel.. A regular fission bomb (the "primary") at one end was used to create the conditions needed to initiate the fusion reaction..The device was designed by Richard Garwin, a student of Enrico Fermi, on the suggestion of Edward Teller..known colloquially as "the father of the hydrogen bomb", although he claimed he did not care for the title..

Faraday is best known for his work regarding electricity and magnetism.. In 1848, as a result of representations by the Prince Consort, Faraday was awarded a grace and favour house in Hampton Court in Middlesex, free of all expenses or upkeep.. This was the Master Mason's House, later called Faraday House, and now No. 37 Hampton Court Road.. In 1858 Faraday retired to live there..Faraday was the first to report what later came to be called metallic nanoparticles..His first recorded experiment was the construction of a voltaic pyle with se7en ha'penny coins, stacked together with se7en disks of sheet zinc, and 6 pieces of paper moistened with salt water...

It took the total number of British forces to die in the conflict to 143..February 2 -Heavy snow fell overnight across large parts of the country, causing widespread disruption to transport and education... is it, when something happens, it is always you 3 ?.
