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 yellow and/or sun:

    O yellow eye,
    let me be sick with your heat,
    let me be feverish and frowning.

    No peevish winter wind shall chill
    No sullen tropic sun shall wither
    The roses in the rose-garden which is ours and ours only
