New and Improved Antimatter Spaceship for Mars Missions

"Most self-respecting starships in science fiction stories use antimatter as fuel for a good reason - it's the most potent fuel known. The NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts (NIAC) is funding a team of researchers working on a new design for an antimatter-powered spaceship that avoids this nasty side effect by producing gamma rays with much lower energy. Antimatter is sometimes called the mirror image of normal matter because while it looks just like ordinary matter, some properties are reversed."
