Ionizing radiation is a form of Radiation consists of subatomic particles or electromagnetic waves that are energetic enough to detach electrons from atoms or molecules, thus ionizing them.
History[edit | edit source]
This kind of radiation was produced by Project Arcturus. As power output of Project Arcturus increased, new and exotic particles were continuously created and destroyed inside the containment chamber, interacting with each other and with the field itself. Eventually, particles were created that could not be prevented in this space-time, and they breached the containment field as hard radiation. (SGA: "Trinity")
