AM: Beam Exhaust Velocity 100,000,000 m/s Specific Impulse 10,193,680 s Thrust 10,000,000 N Thrust Power TW Mass Flow kg/s Total Engine Mass 10,000 kg T/W 102 Fuel Antimatter:
antihydrogen Reactor Antimatter Catalyzed Remass Reaction
Products Remass Accel Annihilation Thrust Director Magnetic Nozzle Specific Power -05 kg/MW Microscopic amounts of antimatter are reacted with equal amounts of matter. Remember: unless you are using only electron-positron antimatter annihilation, mixing matter and antimatter does NOT turn them into pure energy . Instead you get some energy, some charged particles, and some uncharged particles.
