What is Hydrogen bomb ?

North Korea announce that it tests a Hydrogen bomb. What is Hydrogen bomb ? Is it powerful. Let check it out. Hydrogen  or H-bombs use fusion, the same process that powers the sun.

In a hydrogen (thermonuclear) bomb, “heavy” isotopes of hydrogen are forced together to release a much bigger punch — hundreds or even thousands of times more powerful than the only nuclear weapons that have been used in warfare. Hydrogen bombs have a far larger yield than traditional weapons, meaning devices can be smaller while providing greater devastation.
Making them small enough to fit on a missile is a challenging task, and one that North Korea claims to have achieved. Experts are not so sure, but as long as Pyongyang claims to have the technology, the working assumption is that it’s true.
