Just what the world needs Department

The lovable, cuddly Department of Defense is researching a new breed of Gamma-ray weapons based on everyone's favorite adorable isotope, "hafnium178m2." One gram could store more energy than 50 kilos of dynamite.

"The effect of a nuclear-isomer explosion would be to release high-energy gamma rays capable of killing any living thing in the immediate area. It would cause little fallout compared to a fission explosion, but any undetonated isomer would be dispersed as small radioactive particles, making it a somewhat "dirty" bomb."
