Science.


Yes, it is, I didn't pull that number out of my hat. :ghost:

You can't magically compress antimatter, just like you can't magically compress matter.
Also, why the hell would you store 400 000 000 000 times the yearly energy budget of an entire planet on a single orbital station? :P

YES. BIG STATION WITH BIG GUNS

Also, how would you (anyone) know how antimatter works!?

No. That's not big guns, that's the energy output of an entire star of a week. That's just ridiculous.

And...Because I'm a physicist and the properties of antimatter are well known? :P

Okay so I did NOT know that antimatter is so well studied and understood... :eh:

Then I highly recommend that you do not include it in your plots. :D

Plus, while Sawer is right, to actually just destroy the planet, you only need to seriously disturb the hydro-static equilibrium of the crust (if it still has a hot core)
So it would be possible to make a planet uninhabitable with only a few thousand tons of Antimatter. :V
Or... you could just drop a few hundred tons of nuclear warhead, that'd leave it uninhabitable for a few thousand years. :D

My assuption was that antimatter and matter react and produce energy. (As far as I know thats what happens :ghost: )

Now that I checked, it seems the opinions are, in fact, divided half/half... :crazy:

Eh? No they're not, matter and antimatter do annihilate, producing energy (in the form of gamma rays and a bazillion high energy particles and stuff).
It's just that that energy is equal to mass*c². (Einstein, E=mc², ya know) Which easily allows you to calculate the mass of antimatter you need for stuff. :ghost:

You're better off using a Strangelet bomb. :ghost:

The results of logic, of natural progression? Boring! An expected result? Dull! An obvious next step? Pfui! Where is the fun in that? A dream may soothe, but our nightmares make us run!

Memories. Memories are the name given to an untouchable, ever present, thing.

We all have memories, memories of the ones we care about, memories about the things in which we place our interest, our fears, our joys, memories make up all these things and more...

Yet mine... Mine, are missing. It's not uncommon for memories to go missing, any organic life that can have memories over time will forget things. My memories must be removed every so often. Only so much room up in the ole' tinker box. But usually a log, or fragment of previous memories not just my "natural" memories is left behind explaining the last memory wipe. This time, was very, very different.

Thirteen memory wipes, twelve of which I initiated my self. My mind has been violated, a control that only I should have... Someone else used, and I'm fcuking pissed. They say karma can be a bitch, when I get the answers I seek I'll make sure that is true.

My name is Payback.

Payback-13.
