it has come to my attention recently that there is yet another use for gamma radiation -shrinking and enlarging objects. from what was demonstrated to me you can enlarge or shrink objects just like in the movies by simply adding or removing photon energy that is stored inside the atoms which make up the object. i do not have all the physics for this worked out yet but from what i have observed i think i can say safely that:
more energy = larger
less energy = smaller
the size change stays that way until you irradiate it again.
