Yellow Sun

Yellow Sun was the first British operational high-yield strategic nuclear weapon. The name actually refers only to the outer casing; the warhead (or physics package) was known as "Green Grass" (in Yellow Sun Mk.1) and "Red Snow" (in Yellow Sun Mk.2). The ENI or electronic neutron initiator (generator) was Blue Stone.

Famous quotes containing the words sun and/or yellow:

    I was not much afeard; for once or twice
    I was about to speak, and tell him plainly,
    The selfsame sun that shines upon his court
    Hides not his visage from our cottage, but
    Looks on alike.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It was a quiet Sunday morning, with more of the auroral rosy and white than of the yellow light in it, as if it dated from earlier than the fall of man, and still preserved a heathenish integrity.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
