No Boom Today. Boom Tomorrow. There's Always a Boom Tomorrow

I've been waiting for this article for years now. Ever since I learned that the halflife of tritium is about twenty-four years, meaning any thermonuclear bombs we have sitting around loose quite a bit of effectiveness in two decades. The authorization for the design of new nukes happened last year, but I don't recall it making the news. It looks like Ronald Regan's ideal of no nuclear weapons will have to wait a few more decades.
