    Attention carbon-based units!

    Are you sure you want to start playing with this kind of Fire?

    HAL

    We’ve been playing with fire for a long time HAL…

    I recall that Quantum field theory postulates the tiniest of matter/anti-matter particles appear and annihilate each other constantly, but at the size of actual electrons/positrons?

    This alone is going to make quantum physics very interesting for the coming years, if whole positrons are that abundant in free space, this could lead to incredible breakthroughs in propulsion.

    Meanwhile, the GOP wants to cut spending for research.
