indeed Data, to be honest I'm not getting any younger and ~dag nab it~ I want to see ant-matter propelled spaceships before I depart this aging body of mine.

If my memory is working correctly, it would take 2.3 grams (0.08 ounce) of antimatter to get a craft the size of the shuttle into orbit.

Or, at present production rates 10,000 years. Or up production by 10,000.

Unfortunately, there is no antimatter drive. And it would take more energy to make the antimatter than it would take to put a craft into orbit.

Newton's 2nd law of thermodynamics is a bitch.
