    Hi!

    I would like to share with you guys some facts you might not know about antimatter:

    1 - Recent studies suggest that an antimatter spacecraft could achieve up to 70% the speed of light, reaching Proxima b in just about 6 years.

    2 - The maximum time that antimatter has been stored is 405 days.

    3 - According to the former Fermilab physicist Gerald Jackson, antimatter rockets could become a reality by 2050.

    Source: Link deleted by mod (didn't work anyway).

    What are your thoughts about antimatter propulsion?

    "Recent" studies?

    2 - The maximum time that antimatter has been stored is 405 days.
    And?

    3 - According to the former Fermilab physicist Gerald Jackson, antimatter rockets could become a reality by 2050.
    Then he's talking out of his ar*e - antimatter production is so low and so expensive that there'd have to to be a vast increase in funding to get anywhere near enough material to "waste" in a propulsion system.
    Even his proposal is "planned" to use 17 grammes - that's 17 billion times the annual production at CERN, and, at current costs, is between $425 billion (positrons) and $1062.5 billion (anti-hydrogen): hardly feasible.

    Great idea! But we don't have any.

    wouldn't anti matter make everything just spin?

    No.
    Why?

    trust me i'm pretty much right....

    Edit: You're anti-matter is pretty much another word/-words for gravity...

    Then provide the evidence.

    Tell you what: you tell me why you think it would make everything spin, since that is the claim you have made - and I'll then tell you why it's cobblers.

    Cobblers. 1) Antimatter has nothing to do with black holes. 2) Black holes do not make everything spin.

    Sometimes they kiss too, but you know nothing of this.

    Good, because so far you've posted unsupported nonsense and then derided others for pointing out that it is nonsense.

    hey just trying to send a open mind the right direction... BTW geniuses are not real. It's just a person devoted to one stupid motion... I'm something better. I look at the facts. something that is alluding you and won't come around till you're told what it is...... so yeah screw off. You are just a passive aggressive drone that likes to look smart by cutting down other's. You better understand quick that the center of a black hole is more then what you think it is because there's something there that is about to pop your bubble.

    Posting unscientific nonsense isn't the "right direction".

    Wrong.
    I'm something better. I look at the facts.
    And yet you post drivel as opposed to facts.
    something that is alluding you
    Do you mean "eluding"?
    You better understand quick that the center of a black hole is more then what you think it is because there's something there that is about to pop your bubble.
    And yet you can't find one piece of actual science to support your (mistaken) view.

    here's a (small) clue Strange matter

    Edit: I'm finished with this....

    You're right: do not post in the hard science sub fora again.
