So this would be a huge step forward in spacetravel.
But its not that easy to come by..
Now, this article isnt about propulsion, but its in that
direction even unitended..

Science Daily

These two pargraphs are quite intrguing


"The Lyman-alpha transition is the most basic, important transition in regular hydrogen atoms, and to capture the same phenomenon in antihydrogen opens up a new era in antimatter science," said Takamasa Momose, the University of British Columbia chemist and physicist who led the development of the laser system used to manipulate the anithydrogen. "This approach is a gateway to cooling down antihydrogen, which will greatly improve the precision of our measurements and allow us test how antimatter and gravity interact, which is still a mystery."


If we can cool it down, it might be easier to store.

Wow! I could've sworn anti-matter axial decoupling was understood already in this time period, until I read this post. Thanks m8, very informative.

Meanwhile, we still haven't figured out how to do simple surgery without mental and legal contortions a rocket scientist couldn't decipher.

Sure we have. Watch YouTube, self surgery. Tada!

Some are brave enough, and are successful.

Let me just grab the old lady’s makeup compact and a Bowie knife to practice that self tracheotomy! I’ve given myself sutures with fishing line and a sewing needle with zero local but that’s about as far as I’d go on self service medical.


When in doubt supercool it! Yes I’m one of those freaks that has used dry ice cooling on PC hardware, also have done sub zero air cooling (via a pettier cooler), chilled water via phase change cooler (1/3 HP Copeland high capacity compressor) and then direct mount phase change with the same pump. If ain’t -32F or colder you’re not pushing the bleeding edge! I’ve been considering building a 2 stage cascade cooler and getting back into subzero overclocking.

If we are going to play with, create or store antimatter in any kind of sufficient quantity probably better to do so in deep space.
