Is GSN still producing Chain Reaction?
No, it is currently not in first run. It aired for two seasons of 130 episodes from 2006 to 2007. Reruns still air weekdays at 2:30 PM.

A chain reaction is the continuation of a reaction initiated by the reaction itself. In some cases it is a closed reaction, where the repetition ends. In others, it will conti…nue until it exhausts the available reactants. A nuclear chain reaction would include 1) fission, where the neutrons released by a split atom travel outward and cause fission in other radioactive atoms 2) fusion, where the heat energy released by the reaction triggers the fusion of more atoms in a very hot and dense plasma A nuclear reactor moderates a safe fission reaction in a critical mass of radioactive material by allowing only a portion of the neutrons to reach other fissionable atoms. Otherwise, the reaction would cascade into a runaway criticality that would generate too much heat, melting and damaging the nuclear pile. In an atomic bomb, the chain reaction spreads to millions of atoms practically instantaneously. The reaction only lasts a fraction of a second but releases an incredible amount of energy.

A nuclear reactor will do what is asked here. Use the link below to the related question about what a nuclear reactor is.
For a fission reaction to fail to be maintained as a chain reaction each fission must produce less than additional fission reactions?
In a continuous chain reaction at a steady rate, which gives a steady power output from a fission reactor, every fission gives rise to another fission. This happens because in… every fission 2 or 3 neutrons are produced, some are absorbed or lost, but if just one is captured by another fissionable nucleus, the chain reaction will continue. Apex answer = 1
Suppose a nucleus captures two neutrons and decays to produce one neutron is this process likely to produce a chain reaction?
no because the decay requires 2 neutrons to take place and only gives off 1 neutron
The minimum amount of unstable atoms needed to produce an uncontrolled chain reaction is called?
yes. it still does it comeson at 2. or around that time
What is The minimum amount of unstable atoms needed to produce a uncontrolled chain reaction is called?
The minimum amount of unstable atoms needed to produce anuncontrolled chain reaction is called critical mass.
Each fission must produce enough free neutrons to ensure that one of them will be absorbed by another fissionable nucleus and cause a fission in that nucleus, allowing for the… fact that some neutrons will be absorbed by the reactor moderator and other materials in the reactor core, including the control rods, and some neutrons will be lost at the core boundaries. Also even when a neutron is absorbed by a fissionable nucleus, such as U-235, there is some probability that it will produce U-236 rather than another fission. So it's a question of a neutron balance, rather than a rate of energy production. By pulling the control rods out the amount of neutron absorber in the core is reduced to the point where the above neutron balance is reached, and then the chain reaction will start.

no one will ever know
When uranium 235 is fissioned what nuclear particles are produced that can lead to a chain reaction?
Neutrons do this. When 235 U undergoes fission, the result is the production of two daughter atoms, each very roughly half the mass of the original atom, a number of neutrons…, and heat. The neutrons then can collide with other fissile or fissionable atoms causing them to undergo fission much more quickly than they otherwise would.

How many neutrons are produced during a typical uranium fission reaction and what is the role of these neutrons in a nuclear chain reaction?
A typical uranium fission event produces 2 to 3 neutrons. These neutrons are moderated (slowed down) and go on to initiate the fission of more uranium. On average, in a contro…lled reaction that is maintained at normal criticality (K Effective = 1), each fission creates exactly one neutron that is used to produce another fission.
