# Energy from proton and antiproton

 Admin P: 21,827 I seem to remember most $p\bar{p}$ reactions yielded cascades of mesons, with high sufficiently high energy protons producing baryonic resonances (hyperons) which decayed to protons and mesons, or pi-meson cascades. The mesons (charged pions) would decay to muons, which would decay to electrons, and I am leaving out the various neutrinos and anti-neutrinos. Also, pions can interact with protons and neutrons producing Kaons and other baryonic resonances. Generally, gamma rays are associated with $\pi^o$ decay and positron annihilation.
