US scientists designing new generation of nuclear arms

`US scientists are quietly starting work on a new generation of nuclear arms meant to be more rugged and reliable than warheads in the existing arsenal.

About nine million dollars have been allocated so far for weapons designers at the three US nuclear weapons laboratories, the New York Times reported Monday, citing government officials and experts.

The initiative is expected to grow and could produce finished designs in five to 10 years.’
