Gamma Ray Burst / Jet Questions

In summary, the conversation is about the comparison between Gamma Ray Burst emissions in space and those created by a man-made device. The first photo is a Google image of a Gamma Ray Burst, while the second photo is an artist's impression of the device's emissions. The OP is trying to figure out the cause of the different behaviors and colors in the two types of emissions. The thread is closed due to safety concerns.

TL;DR Summary
Gamma Ray Burst Jets vs Electric Spark / Plasma Photon Light Emissions
The 1st photo is a Google image of a Gamma ray Burst in space, the image in the other photo is being emitted from a device I am playing around with. I am just wondering what is the cause of or what dictates the behavior of actual Gamma Ray Bursts in space vs whatever light patters are in the photo I took from the arc or plasma created in a man made device. Also, in the photo I took there are multiple colors being emitted from the sides, where on most pictures I see of a Gamma Ray Burst in space there is only a single color. All though 2 completely different things I was curious to ask because they both share a very similar outline.

Is this related to your previous thread about your non-vacuum particle accelerator?

Thank you so much for replying and trying to help me out! I'm really not trying to come here to find out how to build one as I already have the set up I'm using. I'm more or less trying to get ideas of what some of the products I'm seeing that are being produced are, e.g ( the straight lines emitting from the stone, radiations, etc... ) I definitely don't want to have any of the threads I post closed. What causes people to have the threads closed?

Is not a photo. It says right on the caption "artist's impression".
So the thread us based on a faulty premise.

Re your Google image.You would not see anything as our eyes detect between 400-700nm approximately, gamma ray wave lengths are shorter than this.
Images from space are typically assigned colours to give a sense of structure. The pretty ones from Hubble and JWST.
Purple is logical to assign to higher energy radiation (to me but probably not to all pf) as UV is where the cut off starts.

Re the other image.
If you are somehow producing high energy radiation from your in house accelerator then this will be against pf rules to comment on that specifically, there are health and safety implications.
The mentors will clarify.

Gamma ray bursts have an optical counterpart, however.

But it isn't a photo, and that's something the OP should have told us, but didn't.

I don't believe you. This thread is closed for safety reasons as well.
