From what little I know on the matter, it sounds like heavy water is used to slow reactions in a nuclear reactor, as opposed to the reactions in a nuclear weapon. Yet I've heard that heavy water could be used in the creation of nuclear weapons. Is this true? In what way is, or has, heavy water been used in nuclear weapons? I've searched the archives to find answers to this question, but I haven't found anything regarding the use of heavy water in nuclear weapons.
