Why Only 1 Gram Of This Material Is Worth $25 Billion Dollars

  • Published on Oct 12, 2017
  • There is a math error at 2:35 in this video. It would actually take around 9 years to reach the nearest other star to Earth at 50% the speed of light, not 2. Please ignore what I say there in this video :)

      @Koko Tree History has proven that when it comes to weapons advancement,never say never! Nothing pushes the progress of technology like mankind's desire for possessing a military 'edge' over his enemy..Besides look at some of the stuff we have now that was unheard of just 20 years ago,given the current state of gadgetry available just to the civilian world and seeing what private corporations are doing with robotics etc. You can only imagine some of the scary shit being developed behind closed doors with seemingly unlimited resources.

    Okay so a few things need to be clarified, to store it is actually easier in theory than in practice, but it still is relatively easy we just need currenting vacum (vacum that changes density), to produce it faster is actually the HARDER thing not the easier like the guy said in the video, we somehow need to get far better in changing electron and proton sizes after that we pretty much did it, you just reverse matter (they are doing that rifht now, but they need to find matter of the correct size) and adjust the size, as for how we use the anti matter is actually easier, you make a container of aerogel (really low density) and hold the anti matter inside. (Inside is clear vacum of course) Thats for transporting it while for using it you need to just crush a even a slightest bit of the container. Boom thats it, but we do not have the techonology to make currenting vacum and we cant change size of anything nor any scientist is trying to develop such a machine (not that its possible with our current knowledge and techonology). If you have any questions you can ask me, I am more than willing to explain anything I said.

    Another error. "It would actually take around 9 years to reach the nearest other star to Earth at 50% the speed of light,"
    Only if you instantly started at 50% of the speed of light and didn't stop.
    You can only accelerate halfway and then decelerate. Everybody keeps forgetting this. And if a manned flight you can at most accelerate a little over 1G or be might uncomfortable.
    Recalculate your time.
    At a constant 1G acceleration and 1G Deceleration, if the trip is merely to the nearest star, with deceleration the last half of the way, it would take 3.6 years ship time.

    the nearest star is alpha centauri which is roughly 4,3 lightyears away. which means it takes light moving at lightspeed 4 years to reach it so if we moved at 50% lightspeed it would take us 8 years not 2

    The nearest star from Earth (other than our sun) - Proxima Centauri is 4 light-years away, so it would take 8 years for a spaceship travelling at 50% the speed of light to reach that star, not 2.

      Actually you are correct if the spaceship was travelling at light speed it would appear to take no time for the person in the spaceship to reach the speed of light. For 50% C I used a time dilation calculator and found time would move at 87% the rate of time on Earth, so it would take roughly 6.96 years to reach the star, still not 2. Also the point still stands that 8 years would pass for anyone on Earth.
      Good point tho.

    2:30 "50% near the speed of light, it is fast enough the reach the nearest star in just 2 years" The closest star is Proxima Centauri, which is roughly 8 light years away. Thus 50% speed of light will be a travel time of 8 years instead of 2.

    At about 2:30 he said that if we use antimatter as fuel, we could get to 50% of the speed of light. Then said that would get us to the closest start in a little over two years. In other videos, he tells us Proxima Centauri is 4.2 light years from Earth. If we are traveling at 50% the speed of light, that would take 8.4 years and not a little over 2. Right?

    A lot of people are asking this, so I feel the need to address it. In the video, he states the current prices for the listed drugs. People are saying these facts are wrong, but they are, in fact, correct. The value of a drug can often vary, and is determined by its purity, especially with the drugs made in a lab that were mentioned. The drugs that are found on the street often only contain a small content of the drug themselves and things such as baby powder are often added to increase the quantity. This does, however, decrease the potency of the drug and allow for it to be sold at lower prices. When these drugs are bought, you expect to be getting a large quantity, when, in fact, you are only getting a small amount, bulked out with additives.

      As long as the vaccuuum is perfect enough to have only such an extremely small amount of particles that collisions won't have a noticeable effect. And that has to be a very very good vaccuuum.

      +case cao its good of you to be diligent in your principles, but this is quantum/quirk interaction and is not destructipn regardless
      destruction implies vanishing, but this is transferring the mass into the form of energy which does not destroy it, simply transform it

      Yes, first rule of thermodynamics, matter itself cannot be created nor destroyed, but to us its like a mega explosion. It doesn't matter either way.

    2:29. Anti matter could propulse rocket to 50% of the speed of light. Which is fast enough to reach the closest star to earth in just over 2 years.
    Fact: the closest star to earth is proxima centuri at 4.25 light years.
    Do your calculation...

    2:30 the nearest star alpha Centauri is 4.3 light years away. So it would take almost 9 years to gat there at 50% speed of light not 2 years.

    2:23 If you are going 50% light speed it depends on which observer, with how long it takes. For us on earth it would be way more than two years, it would be eight years (if the speed of the ship was constant). But it's not (obviously) and you have to take into account the acceleration and deceleration times. It would be more like sixteen years instead of eight (relative to earth observers, that is). From the ships observers it would be way less time.

    • massimo cole
      massimo cole Month ago +1

      At 50% the speed of light time dilation makes the trip seem 86.6% as long, so still be way longer than 2 years, 6.928 years for the constant speed trip and even longer for the trip with acceleration deceleration time. I think he must have multiplied the 4 light year distance by 50% instead of divided.

    2:25 it would take 2 years to get to the closet star other than our sun if we could go 50% the speed of light? Alpha Centauri is the closest star system and closest planetary system to Earth's Solar System at 4.37 light-years. 4 x 2 = 8 years, not 2 years.

    I see there was a miscalculation in this video.
    Proxima centauri is the nearest star to earth disregarding the sun and the distance between earth and P. centauri is 4ly. If you are traveling at half the speed of light, you multiply the amount of time by 2. I see that you mistakenly divided the time by 2.
    In reality, it would of taken ~8 years to travel from Earth to Proxima Centauri.

    It will take far more than 2 years to travel to nearest star to earth that is Alpha Centauri . It's 4.3 light years away from earth. So at 50% of light it will take 8.6 - 8.7 years , not " just a little over 2 years ".
