What is the cost of a Kg of U235 ?, I don't mean the black market value but what would the American military have to pay if it wanted to purchase some ?.
How does this compare with the cost of Gold ($10,000.00) or Anti matter?

You can't purchase anti-matter as I am aware it is only created in incredibly small quanitinites at places like CERN.

I understand that the Manhatten project cost several billion ($1940,s) to produce less than 100 Kg I wondered how much the cost had been reduced by modern technology, I just threw in anti-matter as the cost of U235 pales into insignificence in comparison
