WHile the current images being received are in fact 13,000 years old,
based on the distance in light years, there is no reason why this
phenomenon cannot be continuing where it is, or a new one may be forming
elsewhere. The antimatter in the jet is a product of extremely violent
collisions and or explosions that you could not get within a few hundred
light years of without being fried by the radiation density. The product
of the matter antimatter interactions at the edges of the jet is
extremely high energy gamma radiation... Better to make antimatter your
self and keep it in a bottle (magnetic bottle).
