Video by Cosmus using AIRES (AIRshower Extended Simulations) to simulate what happens when a proton with 1Tev (1 trillion electron volts) of energy hits the atmosphere about 20 km above the ground. The shower is in a 20km x 5km x 5km box. Different particles are given different colours, electrons and positrons are green, muons are red and gamma rays are cyan.
