Phase Change and Space Travel
Asian Journal of Research and Reviews in Physics,
Here we discuss the implications of phase change equations and what bearing they might have on interstellar space travel. The phase change equations are derived from either thermodynamics or statistical mechanics and have a similarity. Then, the main equation for limit of superheat is posited to be a solution to the problem of propulsion in space travel. There are two matter-antimatter systems considered: electron – positron and hydrogen – antihydrogen. What is involved in the space travel problem is harvesting of antimatter in magnetic bottles and keeping it separate.
