Antimatter in a white hole
Name: Eileen B
If you ever run into a white hole will it give off anti-matter and if it
gives off anti-matter can you collect it and use it to power a space ship?
What is a white hole?
Whatever it might be, I think the answer is not known.
The question really is, are the fundamental properties of the different
types of matter preserved when going through various possible general
relativistic processes (like into and out of a black hole), or does what
comes out lose all memory of what went in sometimes? If the "memory" is
lost, then it might be a way to make anti-matter. On the other hand, having
control of a black hole or anything of that magnitude would probably be much
more useful than just for production of antimatter.
