Created Pakistan's atomic bomb.


Riazuddin had multiple conflicts in making this bomb. One being whether to use Plutonium or enriched Uranium, and another being how to compress the materials and which detonators to use. He used multiple teams like the PAEC(Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission) and the TPG(Theoretical Physics Group) to gather data and research for the WMD. Riazuddin made history on multiple different levels for his contributions to physics and for being from Pakistan.
