    Which is more harmful: A Surface Blast or an Air Blast?In an explosion where radiation occurs, such as when nuclear weapons or blasts create thermal radiation, the air blast, or waves that occur, can potentially be more dangerous than the initial blast itself. When a nuclear bomb hits, the explosion itself only affects a small area, but the radiation that is emittd after it has exploded is what causes the most damage. The waves the come from the detonation spread for miles, completely changing the atmosphere, air pressure, and all life around it. Even though the bomb is detonated, the wreckage of the emission can spread onward for days, reaching other places of the world. Although the surface blast causes much harm, the radiation transmitted prior to the discharge is the most harmful.

    ...
    Particle accelerators are used for a couple things. They can be used to understand the workings of a star. They can also be used to make new elements. It helps recreate huge natural occurring reactions that are too quick or too hot to study. They can also be used for some sort of Particle therapy. You use a particle accelerator to bombarded the tumor with charged particles killing all cells in the tumor. This method is a lot more precise than using x-rays but it is also very expensive. Accelerators can also be used as a source of energy. Using thorium in a ASDS accelerator will create the same amount of energy as a nuclear reactor but with a lot less waste.
