Annihilation results in an extreme burst of energy..... If enough antimatter is isolated, it can be utilized for annihilation which can converted into useful energy.......This can make us approximately
half as fast as light.... Just wanted to have ur comments ..?? Is it possible....?

What do you mean by "This can make us approximately half as fast as light" ? There seems to be some context missing from your question.

I think it's a misconception, and he wanted to say that it allows us (theoretically) to create really effective in speeding up machines  eg spaceships. Of course as already pointed out, this is just a theoretical result, and practically by today's technology, we can't isolate enough antimatter ...
If I recall well, a CERN scientist had said in public (due to the "Illuminati" book), that taking all the accelerators on earth, and the rate they produce antimatter which we can isolate, we need some thousands to millions of years to isolate enough antimatter to give the same power as one nuclear bomb.

While antimatter would have enough energy density to let a spacecraft reach half the speed of light with a reasonable amount of fuel, it is unclear how to use this energy in an efficient way. The easiest design (use it as in a chemical rocket) will waste a large fraction of the energy and heat the spacecraft  and that really limits the thrust you can get. More realistic designs are much more inefficient.

Thanks everyone...... and by the way, I did commit a mistake in the question.
