Introduction According to Einstein.. Matter can be turned into energy, and energy into matter. 0.111Kg of hydrogen(in 1kg of water) is equivalent to 10,000,000,000,000,000 Joules of energy. Can all this energy really be released? Has it ever been? Why?
What is antimatter….? Antimatter is comprised of antiparticles…. Positrons (e+)–electron. Antiproton(p-)-proton Anti-neutrons(pions): 0 charge, opposite magnetic field They have the opposite charge.. Same mass… Obey the same physical laws… Our universe seems to be made entirely of matter. The only antimatter in it is created in high energy collisions and is soon annihilated.
LHC-worlds largest particle accelerator CERN.. Produce photons of high velocity… collide with a target.. But if antimatter cant touch matter, how did they conserve it, well they want to put an electo shield inside a vacuum with no matter, this elecro flow makes the antimatter hover, not touching the walls of the container, which is matter..
Uses of antimatter.. Antimatter in Spacecraft…. Power generation… PET(Positron Emission Tomography) in hospital…. Antimatter weapons..
140 Nano grams of antiprotons… Only 30 days to Mars… 1996, the Mars Global Surveyor took 11 months to arrive at Mars…. Heliopause, the point at which the suns radiation ends.. Magnetic storage rings Feed system Magnetic rocket nozzle thruster
antiprotons are injected to annihilate and heat the plasma ..
the charged particles of the antiproton annihilation are directly released out of the vehicle along an axial magnetic field at a very high velocity near the speed of light.. Why magnetic nozzle..?
Principles… Photons production by the stimulation of atoms with electric discharges, light flashes, or any other means; photons amplification by population inversion of excited atoms; particle-antiparticle production by the collision of photons; ion-pairs generation by the striking of high energy charged particles with atoms at rest, and subsequent generation of electron-positron avalanches within conducting materials; finally, the separation of electron-positron pairs by the crossing of strong electromagnetic forces, originating the phenomena know as Electricity.
Advantages and disadvantageNo pollution..Greater efficiency..Capacity in GW… Energy from antimatter could be so economical, that it will be cheaper to SAVE THE PLANET than to destroy it. 4.5 million dollars for equipment.. 270 million dollars for construction.
inject positrons into a brain and watch for gamma rays that flash when the positrons encounter electrons of normal matter. The two destroy each other, giving off a light pattern that is different in an afflicted brain than in a normal one, thus revealing neurological aberrations….
