Can someone help me with the concept of anti-matter? It exists somewhere in the universe, as I understand it, but when it comes into contact with matter, the contact results in a huge explosion. Where can this anti-matter be? I have heard someone suggest using the explosion resulting from a matter/anti-matter collision as a source of propulsion, perhaps for space shuttles, or something similar. But how could we carry anti-matter (even if we were to find it) because anything we tried to store it in would explode. What exactly is anti-matter composed of? Thanks for your time.
