This website, maintained by the Federation of American Scientists (FAS), contains in-depth information on the design, production, and effects of nuclear weapons and nuclear materials. Organized by topic, the site gives separate treatment to each nuclear weapons material and each nuclear detonation effect. The sections on uranium and plutonium production are particularly detailed. Other topics include ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and aircraft as well as links to similar sites for chemical and biological weapons. The website would be a useful resource for those interested in the fabrication of nuclear materials.
