Disruption Mitigation and Runaway Electron
Suchfields have have been associated with runaway electrons
capable of generating X-rays with energies of 100 KeV or more [33, p.
In a new theory he has presented at several scientific conferences, he argues that the runaway electrons
thought to trigger lightning also produce gamma rays, which in turn collide with ordinary air particles to produce electrons and positrons.
``These results provide strong evidence that the production of runaway electrons
is an important process during lightning,'' the researchers wrote in the journal Science.
I'm sure it has something to do with runaway electrons
and missing protons, and I don't care.
For instance, the damage of the first wall of tokamak reactor by the runaway electrons
may cause a disaster.
