Have you ever imagined how interstellar travel could work? | Ryan Weed | TEDxDanubia
Meet a true explorer who might lead humanity to make interstellar travel a reality by developing the world’s first antimatter rocket. Through his fascinating speech at TEDxDanubia, you will have an understanding on how positrons meet electrons to reach an energy level to travel faster and farther than you could ever imagine.
The 31‐year‐old Air Force pilot is Co‐founder and CEO of Positron Dynamics, the company that is pioneering the use of antimatter in space propulsion. He has a BA degree in Physics from Wesleyan University in Connecticut, a BSc in Engineering & Applied Physics from Columbia University, New York, a PhD
