When a particle of a given type encounters a corresponding antiparticle, they mutually annihilate and all of their combined mass is converted into energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation (photons) according to Einstein’s famous E = mc² equivalence. For this reason, antimatter must be kept shielded from all ordinary matter, including air, which means keeping it suspended or circulating in a vacuum. This can only be achieved via magnetic fields in the case where the antimatter has an electric charge. The energy release involved is huge: half a milligram of matter brought together with half a milligram of corresponding antimatter will release enough energy to power a 2 kW heater continuously for about 520 days.

LOL! A failed psychostimulant, then. How apt. As for your spoiler, I’m right alongside you there — or so I’ve been assured on numerous occasions.

I think I need a Mehdivac.

Meh to the power of 14 = Canadian.
