    George was an purely experimental test device named the CYLINDER. It consisted of an enriched uranium core using a unique cylindrical implosion system. This was used to ignite a physically seperate quantity of deuterium and tritium. The yield of the fusion portion of the test was negligible, but was important in developing the principles required for the later successful thermonuclear weapons. The cloud formed three ice caps in close succession; each was left behind as a shining crystal bell along the stem. When the fireball was at it's zenith, a translucent blue violet nimbus was clearly visable caused by ionisation of the surrounding air.
