Antimatter Facilities are need to acquiring, processing & storing fabricating antimatter energy sources. Acquiring antimatter will be significantly more different than mining asteroids. Unmanned spacecraft are used because matter & antimatter annihilates upon contact. The spacecraft uses force fields for grabbing, handling, processing, & storing antimatter. Small comet fragments (gram to kilogram quantities) would be the easiest for grabbing, handling and processing into antimatter energy sources. Larger comet fragments (kilogram to metric ton quantities) require a more effort. Unmanned spacecraft follow comets in order to grab fragments that cut or blow off the comet. The larger comet fragments are handling and processing into larger antimatter energy sources. Comet fragments provide enormous amount energy. A metric ton of antimatter (mass of the average car) can produce all the electricity in the world for one year. The energy sources can be used to bring every country into the 21st century without destroying our environment and turning the Star Trek Dream into Reality.
So I was right to be dubious about the article. I wish people wouldn't post rubbish and pretend it's authoritative.

I love the story of one of the freak shows he organised, an albino black slave was one of the exhibits and next to his booth was a door marked 'Egress', when the suckers egress-ed and found themselves outside they had to pay again to get back in to see the rest of the exhibits.
As a proposal for a source of energy it out-barmeys Hydrogen.It's a shame that advertising standards prevents a nice little earner for someone.
