If i`m not totally off,theories says that antimatter can just react with the same amount of matter.

Then the reaction stops.

I think the two would cancel each other out if I'm not mistaken so yes

my question is how antimatter would have any purpose to us in immediate future... sure, we're only getting a few particles a year, but that's still gotta be able to do something since it's so powerful... maybe they'll use it to power that new fusion reactor they're building

I believe they would use fusion to power a fusion reactor

they just built a new experimental fusion reactor, and they said that they were having some major problems with power, so anti-matter might be a good choice :)

'LIGHTNING [NL']magnet-detail-half.jpg This is part of the CERN antiproton decelerator ring, which is 188 meters (617 feet) long and consists of a vacuum pipe surrounded by a long sequence of vacuum pumps, magnets, radio-frequency cavities, high voltage instruments and electronic circuits.

That should give you an idea about how likely it is for terrorists to get anti-matter in the next 500 years. :)

Wow. The Ones I have seen look more...um, official? That one looks hommade or like it was made from a junk yard pile :uhm:

Antimatter is too unstable to use. When it touches any form of matter, it reacts, and a cup would be stronger than the Nuke on Hirshima.
