Oh, look. Antimatter in orbit.

In extremely small amounts – extremely, extremely, extremely small amounts – getting caught up at the Van Allen Belts.  Still, as energy sources go it doesn’t get any more efficient than antimatter – besides, any information on how to stably store antimatter ‘naturally’ for any length of time would be handy when it comes time for us to do it artificially.

So I guess that we better write all of this down for the benefit of the next civilization that decides to have a manned space program, so that they can properly exploit this information.  I hope that they like human rights!

PS: Nooooooo, I don’t think that I would quite trust private space development with antimatter quite yet, thanks.

    I’d trust a private firm with antimatter before I’d trust the BATFE. Or DEA. Or…

  • BCochran1981 says:

    Seriously. You’re going to trust antimatter to BHO, Pelosi, Reid, KERRY? I think I’d take my chances with Gates, Jobs, Wynn, etc.

  • Rob Crawford says:

    Hell, I’d trust a toddler with antimatter before I’d trust Pelosi, Reid, or Kerry.

  • BCochran1981 says:

    My money’s on Kerry…

  • Rob Crawford says:

    Hmmm… in the amounts they’ve found in orbit, I think they most you’d be able to do by eating it is blow your own head off…

    Win-win for any of the three, I think. I may have to change my position on this…

    Rob, that sounds like angry, right wing, hate filled, violent rhetoric.
