The one in the lead had had a negatron pistol drawn, and when Bold had leaped at them, he had been blasted.
Ron Val leaped past Hargraves, dived for a seat on the negatron.
As he listened, he heard it again, and this time he recognized it—negatron pistols.
The negatron swung around to the right, centered on something there.
They had two rifles, one an autoloader, and they had in all likelihood three negatron pistols.
Ron Val lifted a white face from the sighting 'scope of the negatron.
These units are the positron, the negatron, and the neutron.
"If they don't succeed in manning the negatron," Usher pointed out.
This wasn't the way he wanted it; that fellow had a negatron pistol, and he was close enough to use it effectively.
And to the left of the bridge two men had already jerked the covers from the negatron and were standing ready beside it.
negatron neg·a·tron (něg'ə-trŏn')
An electron with a negative charge, as contrasted with a positron.
electron e·lec·tron (ĭ-lěk'trŏn')
A stable subatomic particle in the lepton family having a rest mass of 9.1066 × 10-28 gram and a unit negative electric charge of approximately 1.602 × 10-19 coulomb. Also called negatron.
An electron with a negative charge; the antiparticle of the positron. Most branches of particle physics construe each particle along with its antiparticle to be two different forms of one underlying phenomenon, and the term electron is sometimes used as a precisely such a general term, with positron and negatron referring to the forms of the electron as they are manifested in nature. See more at electron.
An elementary particle with a negative charge and a very small mass. Electrons are normally found in orbits around the nucleus of an atom. The chemical reactions that an atom undergoes depend primarily on the electrons in the outermost orbits (the valence electrons).
Note: The movement of large numbers of electrons through conductors constitutes an electric current.
