Antimatter or "contra-terrene matter" is matter that is composed of the antiparticles of those that constitute normal matter.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

If a particle and its antiparticle come in contact with each other, the two annihilate and produce a burst of energy, which results in the production of other particles and antiparticles or electromagnetic radiation. In these reactions, rest mass is not conserved, although (as in any other reaction) energy (E=mc²) is conserved.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Antimatter, when available for fuel is normally antihydrogen and can also be a weapon (Missile Warhead) as early as TL–17.
