If for whatever reason your antimatter starts to "interact" with the real world I'd assume the entire amount (and the equivalant matter) would be converted. 2 kg of uranium fissions --> 1 g of mass converted to energy, enough to destroy a city 2 kg of antimatter --> 4 kg of mass converted to energy, enough for... ? (my imagination lacks comprehension) There are certain spherical bodyparts that are usually described as being of steel to depict courage, but I don't think steel is impressive enough to describe what it takes to confidently handle a metric ton of antimatter. Ignorance perhaps. Then again, does it really matter for the handler if an ounce spills, compared to the full load? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
