Default Anti-matter

Saw this and thought it was pretty super-dope. Not sure how many people in the forums really care, but thought I would share.

I think it would be used to make a new powerful weapon, probably not an energy source at least in the USA because "we" love oil too much imho ( big oil company owners would fight it like they do the electric car )

I don't think it would be used for either because it probably takes a lot of energy to just try to hold it for a few seconds.

It takes a lot of money to produce antimatter, making it a bit difficult to be used for either. I read somewhere that antimatter also has medical purposes... I'll have to look for the link.

If the industrial revolution had developed on the concepts of people like Nikola Tesla we would possibly be learning quantum mechanics type stuff in grade school.

Yeah, Nikola Tesla was a freak of nature. He would be a genius among geniuses.

That's pretty cool, I wonder how much it takes to create the anti-matter.

"It would take longer than the age of the universe to make one gram of antimatter," he said, calling the process "a losing proposition because it takes much more energy to make antimatter than you get out of it."
