The Union_sphere Component

Sphere geometry component for the Union components



Part of the Union components, a set of components that work together and thus
sperates geometry and physics within McStas.
The use of this component requires other components to be used.

1) One specifies a number of processes using process components
2) These are gathered into material definitions using Union_make_material
3) Geometries are placed using Union_box/cylinder/sphere, assigned a material
4) A Union_master component placed after all of the above

Only in step 4 will any simulation happen, and per default all geometries
defined before this master, but after the previous will be simulated here.

There is a dedicated manual available for the Union components

The position of this component is the center of the sphere

It is allowed to overlap components, but it is not allowed to have two
parallel planes that coincides. This will crash the code on run time.
