The United States has taken a significant step closer to developing a nuclear bomb that some say could be the most dangerous ever produced.

The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration announced earlier this month that it has completed the development and testing phase of the B61-12, the first-ever guided nuclear bomb.

The news of the announcement was reported by Reveal.

The government now says that the so-called ‘smart’ nuclear bomb will enter the production engineering phase. By 2020, the US will commence full-scale production.
