What is vortex math

If antimatter were a common fuel for spaceships, what could prevent them from being jointly armed? [Duplicate]

You could make it very difficult to contain it properly to arm it.

We have this problem with nuclear power (thank god!). It is much more difficult to detonate uranium with the power of an atomic bomb than it is to generate electricity from it. You have to enrich it first.

One of the biggest unknowns to antimatter use is containment. Good containment is difficult. The best we achieved was antiprotons for 16 minutes. Perhaps the only way you can store antimatter for a reasonable period of time is to stabilize it so well that it will take time for the energy to dissipate even if you disassemble the device. Maybe the antimatter self Part of the containment, and the properties of the antimatter are sufficient to maintain the containment for a short time.

Perhaps vortex math actually gives some useful results. Rodin coils are popular in this community because they are believed to ... well ... I'm just saying that there are many people who believe they can be used to violate the principle of energy conservation. Here is an example of something they can actually do.

One of the nice things that happen in these experiments is that you can manage to rotate something at great angular speeds, and even if you remove the force, the object continues to rotate (due to its angular inertia). However, if anything in vortex mathematics turns out to be correct, we can determine that "something else" can start rotating, and that rotating stabilizes the antimatter so that it does not immediately annihilate.

(Note: In particle physics we often refer to things as "spin" simply because they have rotational-like properties. This "spinning" could be more of a new attribute of matter than actual physical spinning like the spherical magnet in the video.)

In this case, it may take a minute or two for the spin to drop. A gun that discharges over a minute or two is much less terrifying than a weapon that discharges in milliseconds.


You could make it very difficult to contain it properly to arm it. “But - as you will recognize three sentences later - it is already very difficult to contain it.

@RonJohn If you're struggling to contain something (like we do now), it means it, too very difficult to deliver as it bleeds out its energy during storage. If the only way to stabilize it so that it doesn't bleed is not to quickly defuse it, you're ready.


But there is no such thing as "stabilizing antimatter".

@RonJohn yet. It's a "high sci-fi setting". Almost everything about the question is still there Not possible. Typically, high sci-fi supports new scientific theories as long as they don't directly contradict existing ones.
