How Are Gamma Rays Made?

Answer

Gamma rays are made up of packets of energy called photons. They have millions of energy more than the visible light and can only be detected by their effect on matter that they come in contact with. They are made up of very high frequency radiation and are produced by decay of high energy states in the atomic nuclei.
