The paper indicates that several orders of magnitude would have to be
achieved before such a fuel storage method becomes workable. I wonder if such
attempts to achieve this level of energy concentration can be considered a
safety hazzard? If several grams of antihydrogen detonate, would this yield
something along the order of a nuclear explosion?

Should we set up such experimental antihydrogen factories in Siberia, in
northern Canada, in Antartica, on the lunar surface? Ah! The Klingon energy
production facility on Praxis, Star Trek 5?
