Di-positronium!!!

Finally -- after only 50 or 60 years of attempting to make the stuff. I'm very impressed with this accomplishment.

Possibly, although not directly. Some ideas for creating fusion involve using very high powered lasers to heats pellets of matter to temperatures. If they can uses this to create a very high powered laser, then it could help with this typr of fusion. However, I have to wonder whether there would be any net gain of energy as the process for creating Di-positronium sounds like it might require quite a bit of energy itself.

Only downside is that the US military is right there, more high tech weapons for them to play with I suppose.

Are you suggesting that the military would be interested in a death ray that penetrates 6' of concrete as easily as it penetrates a window???  Shocked

OTOH, a lot of the things we have today, from microwave ovens, to balloon tires, to computers and the Internet itself owe their existence research done by or for the military
