Historical footage of the mushroom cloud from a thermonuclear bomb explosion. A thermonuclear bomb is a multi-stage device that uses a standard atomic bomb explosion to produce further fusion and fission reactions in other bomb components, releasing far more energy than the primary atomic bomb alone. The largest bombs ever detonated have used variations of this design.
