I was wondering if anyone would provide some insight as to the possibilities of antimatter replication. Based upon current information , we can only manufacture this in miniscule amounts. Does anyone concur with my theory that this is possible from a home based application - provided I construct deep underground with adequate shielding - maybe heavy water , intense EM fields , or antineutrino buffers? I expect this to be removed , so any input given expediently would be appreciated.

Dont know about antimatter, but after my 3 alarm chili last night, I find myself making lots of gas! Of course my DW does not aprove of this, so I find myself deep underground as well (in the basement). Hope this helps!

Considering the type of facilities required to produce that "miniscule amount" of antimatter in a safe manner, no, this could not be done on a home based operation. Unless you have about 1,000 acres, there's no way you could construct the facilities needed. At least at this point, it's a totally inefficient energy source - requires way more resources to produce than the energy that you get back from it. And I would NEVER feel comfortable making those kinds of materials available on such an open basis.

I found this article to be quite interesting:

Creating antimatter requires input of vast amounts of energy, at least equivalent to the rest energy of the created particle/antiparticle pairs, and typically (for antiproton production) tens of thousands to millions of times more. Your electric bill is likely to be quite high.

Are you trying to create a propulsion system for your homemade rocket so you can leave the planet before the meltdown and/or zombie apocalypse? Your neighborhood may not be zoned for such activities. I would check with your HOA first.

On a side note, I loved the episode of Lost in Space when they went to the Anti Matter Universe.

I think I found some of that stuff digging for fishing worms.

It would be more scientific if you put several less microns of da weed you smoking IN YOUR NEXT JOINT.

Antimatter? In Charlotte? OK since you are asking, there is no future in it. You should check into the Gravitic Enhanced Fusion process. Westinghouse will be building many of these out on Westinghouse Blvd in SW Charlotte one day. (Westinghouse "Event Horizon-II" Gravitic Enhanced Fusion Reactors) Best to get in on the ground floor. Charlotte will be the center of design, development and production of these reactors for the EA Navy. Glorious Times.

More here Brightwarrior 2 Might be a while until you recover your investment. In the meantime, if you insist on the antimatter work, please do it in South Charlotte.

E.A.S Charlotte was lost due to an accident that sent the ship across the event horizon. First successful ship to use the Charlotte technology was the EAS Spartan. Named after the companion city near here down I-85.
