Read the original report, "Why North Korea’s Claim That It Has a Hydrogen Bomb Is Worrisome," by Bruce Klingner.
With a range of 10,000 kilometers, North Korea’s Taepo Dong 2 missile can reach most of the continental U.S., plus Alaska and Hawaii. About 120.6 million Americans—38 percent of the total U.S. population—live in those areas.
