    It's too unstable

    Interesting fact about anitmatter, we are nearly at the point where we can hold and contain antimatter stable and secure inside a magnetically legatation chamber with 0 atmospheric pressure inside

    umm interested but dunno much bout antimatter

    I've attended some fascinating lectures on dark matter and its detection. It is surprising it doesn't elicit more general interest.

    What's there with antimatter? Their behavior is well known and certain antimatter particles are already in use for the Collider experiments all around the world!
    Regarding Dark matter, there are various precision experiments are going on, it will be detected soon :)

    This should be an explosive subject.

    Antimatter is proven and ee are actualy produceing it only couple of atoms but we do. And dark matter eell it must be some noninterective force caude it to much gravity for the mass

    Only the charged particles that we create. Once you start building anything with them, like a proper anti-atom with positrons in its orbit, you can't contain it any more using magnets.

    Isn't a single gram of antimatter supposed to be worth like the entire worlds economy?

    Did you see that scientists postulated that dark matter could decline under many different elements? Justifying the different interraction with the matter and light, creating particules with their verry own proprieties and masses.. it's pretty interesting

    Since antimatters has its full mass annihilated into pure energy when it touches regular matter, one gram comes down to quite a lot of energy.
    If you fill in a gram for the mass in E = mc², you end up with an energy of 24.97 gigawatt hours, or 1.4 times the energy released by the nuclear bomb dropped on Hirashima (15 kiloton of TNT). I doubt there's anyone that thinks having a gram around is a good idea.

    This is actually half of what you'd get, since you'd also convert one gram of regular matter at the same time. Good times.

    Not true as you can create antimatter quite easily, for eg: Photon with about 1 MeV energy itself is enough to produce an electron-positron (anti-electron) pair simply based on E = mc^2 equation. In other words, we are dealing with antimatter almost every second, coming from cosmic rays (For eg: muon+ and muon-). Plus there are collider experiments where scientists collide particles and antiparticles in bunches ( for eg: electron + positron bunches collision). The question makes more sense if you have added the word "stable" before antimatter :)

    My dude, we're talking about an entire gram here. You need a nuclear warhead to fully convert its energy into pure anti-matter to get a gram. An electron-positron pair is only 0.[24 zeroes]4 grams

    True, and I said it's not difficult to produce a pair, and can easily extrapolate to one gram, just like we do for electrons (eg: Avogadro number).
