I was told to shorten my question to a number of different questions altogether.

Let's say that WR-38 blasted Earth, what would happen to the surface of earth?

More specifically, how would the changes to the ozone layer effect the surface? Perhaps this could cause smog on the surface, or maybe it leaves an enormous pit from the radiation burst. How would the surface differ after the shock of a GRB?

What would the surface of earth look like if a GRB ruined the ozone layer? In other words, what are implications for surface life post GRB hit?

  • $\begingroup$ This isn't ready to be reopened. Think of it this way, you're asking us to predict what will happen to the surface of the entire earth. Every mountain, city, desert, plain, ocean, lake, river, person, animal, insect... You've asked a vague question, here's a vague answer: bad things. Please remember, the SE model is one-specific-question/one-best-answer. Asking what will happen to the surface is not specific. Even asking what would happen to the atmosphere (just the gas, nothing else) isn't specific. Asking what would happen to the atmo on the impact side might be specific enough. $\endgroup$ – JBH Nov 12 '18 at 22:09
  • $\begingroup$ In addition to other comments, why WR-38? Seems like a pretty unremarkable gamma ray source. Perhaps provide some background explaining the magnitude of energy you want to hit the Earth with? $\endgroup$ – kingledion Nov 12 '18 at 22:19
  • $\begingroup$ Nate, being asked to "shorten" your query doesn't mean to expand and ask SIX DIFFERENT QUESTIONS! Please edit your query again: ask one single question that focuses on one single topic or problem you are experiencing with your worldbuilding. Take a look at the help center and tour for more information on writing good SE questions. This one should be left on hold until improved. $\endgroup$ – elemtilas Nov 13 '18 at 1:48
