Does anyone know if any work, no matter how speculative, has been done on the following: Assume a ship (or any vessel) travels through space with a Gamma of 10-100. As the ship travels through the interstellar medium, there is a constant barrage of nuclear explosions over the tip of the jet as interstellar particles slam into the jet. Is any other detail further speculated on this? Would the resulting nuclear explosions form any kind of streamlines (obviously I mean of exotic, high energy particles here not air particles), shock waves, bow waves, etc. analogous to air flows over a regular airplane? Would there be any patterns resulting from the by-products of reactions with the high-energy reactions of the light speed jet and interstellar space gas? Ok if this is too far advanced or out there, but I searched for a long time on the internet and couldn't find anything, and just wanted to check. I did searches on "relativsitic fluid dynamics", but that field has more to do with gases around stars and black holes.
