RE: starship-design: Apology


Not that I doubt you but, how did you come up with 20 kJ? even allowing
for only a partial incomplete (messy) reaction I would have assumed it 
would be somewhat more. Of course, I have never really had anything to 
do with antimatter, only nuclear and chemical explosives.

As far as the trip to Mars goes, the antiprotons are for ACMF (Antiproton
Catalyzed Micro Fusion/fission) which is more than adequate for a fast 4 
month trip.
