antihydrogen Reactor Antimatter Catalyzed Remass Reaction
Products Remass Accel Annihilation Thrust Director Magnetic Nozzle Specific Power -05 kg/MW Microscopic amounts of antimatter are reacted with equal amounts of matter. Remember: unless you are using only electron-positron antimatter annihilation, mixing matter and antimatter does NOT turn them into pure energy . Instead you get some energy, some charged particles, and some uncharged particles.
