Dear Folks:
Check out this story on the Army going for an antimatter bomb.

Erich ... have you graduated from high school yet?

You should note that this is scienceagogo.com not crackpotsagoogoo.com or nutcasesanonymous.org.

OK already........I may suffer from cranial rectal inversion, be an idiot, and not out of high school yet, however do you believe that Delphi, NASA, NIST, MIT etc. are? I am looking for reasoned arguments on the peer reviewed papers that support this technology, not insults.

Respectfully,
Erich

Erich, Not sure if your link works. I found the article here http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2004/10/04/MNGM393GPK1.DTL

Quite an interesting read. Not sure why some people here think you're daft posting it.

"Positronium" sounds a bit like something that might power the Jupiter II spacecraft from the tv show Lost in Space!

I made a mistake posting, my last post should be on the high density plasma topic and vice versa.

Kate:

Tis is daft as because one can not, with current technology or even currently imaginable technology, create and store anti-matter.

Not to mention the fact that a bit of deuterium and tritium are more than enough to destroy anything, anywhere, at any time. So inveting trillions of dollars into unproven technology just to accomplish the same thing is ... well daft.

So daft that even the US Military couldn't even be considering it.

[quote]It's like the difference between driving an Indy race car and a 1971 Ford Pinto. In the Pinto, you'll eventually get to the finish line, but it will take 10 times longer than in the Indy car.[quote]

Indy 500 takes two or three hours. I've driven a Pinto, in traffic, five hundred miles in seven hours.

Internet, how I love thy hyperbole.

Actually you will get there faster in the Ford than the Indy car.

Because I doubt you'd get more than 100 miles before the State Patrol decided to give the Indy car driver a lesson in humility complete with stainless steel bracelets.
