Sep 19, 2012 ... An atom contains protons and neutrons in its central nucleus. ... it has been
bombarded by other subatomic particles known as neutrinos. ... on to cause two
separate reactions, each of which can cause at least two more. A single impact
can jumpstart a chain reaction, driving the release of still more energy.
Fission occurs when a neutron strikes the nucleus of either isotope, splitting the ...
This is known as a chain reaction and is what causes an atomic explosion. ...
