I would like to see the detailed math for the thrust, so I
can do the calculations myself. Right now
anti-matter production not very practical, anybody got ideas for 
that.( anybody for huge solar anti-matter production plants in orbit 
around the sun. ?) I  assume the thrust is for over a year so that
is very good engine.
