Idk where you get your math that spiting one atom isn't a big deal. The speed the particle hits the nucleus is the only big deal, because that factors
the speed another particle can hit another nucleus and split it. If it's slow, it's lower probability, if it's fast, it's high probability. This is
the only 'math' in the energy of a chain reaction of atoms spiting.
Quantum entanglement mirrors two particles. Can you speed one particle to massive speed and does this change the speed of the other? Yes.
Just like the Quantum Bubble, you miss the link of how chain reactions are what's favorable about quantum technology in the first place.
How do you get hung up on the lab exploding, but then claim there won't be enough energy to nuke, then also claim that same small amount of energy
cannot be contained? When it was described to myself, it was that it is contained(A computer). I only humored the idea of it exploding in the lab
mattering with you.
I don't understand your real position?
What exactly is it you don't understand about infinite
simultaneous reactions? Even if they were mirroring a small reaction, the application
that they can simultaneously occur, even in a single spot, is a chain nuclear reaction on it's own regardless of the speed of particles. It's a nuke
that 'explodes faster' at the minimum.
I'll quote myself here:
The benefit is infinite amount of secondary ranged explosions.
I'm sure you have some grasp of all the atoms in your body being split, and the effect that causes.

Wheres the HEU?
At the first location, if it even needs to be. Remember, they are mirroring particles at a distance, does it matter what they use to accelerate them?
Hopefully they don't actually need to blow themselves up to speed a particle at a distance, and cause it to start splitting atoms.
The reason uranium is specifically used in bombs is because it's unstable and good for starting the process of getting a chain reaction of individual
neutrons to split a single atom that splits into 3 more neutrons, and releases a lot of energy in the process. However ultimate goal is still just
getting particles to split atoms, and the experiment can replicate that indefinitely. There's no need for 1 splitting into 3.
Another humorous thought is that you can just fire the particle at HEU your enemy owns and it will cause the result you're sort of demanding. Even
though that's not even necessary for it to be destructive. That's like shooting the barrel of gasoline in those shooter games to clear the whole
