How to use "Thermonuclear bomb" in context?

When the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945, no one could have predicted the devastating effects of a thermonuclear bomb. A nuclear weapon is made up of two or more subatomic bombs that are united together by heat. A thermonuclear bomb is a much more powerful form of nuclear weapon that uses the explosive power of hydrogen atoms to create a blast that can destroy everything in a large area. Whereas an atomic bomb uses the nuclear fission process to create a blast, a thermonuclear bomb relies on the mutual fusion of two hydrogen atoms to create a much more powerful explosion.
