    Hi Astronuc.

    Thanks for the incredible reading material.

    One question though.

    Should Antimatter be stored at facilities that matchs the security of NORAD?
    Keep it buried under a mountain in a Strengthened Facility?

    Terrorist Prevention against incoming 747s.

    Losing containment because of some nut sounds horrifying.:bugeye:
