comment What new breakthrough energy technologies are close to being realized?
Good overview of the ITER (and followers) projects.

OK, I agree, as I said, this is a simple model.

comment How's the energy of particle collisions calculated?
OK. You have E = gamma m0 c2 so if you have the speed you have gamma and the energy. So yes, the energy will be higher. Note that in all these cases, when work with these concepts it is very rare to think in term of speed; it is easier to talk (and measure) energies and momenta.

comment A force's magnitude
You already know the answer ...; I was saying that a force is just a normal vector, call it magnitude, strength, length, norm, size, whatever you like. The magnitude (strength) is not different from "vector" as Herb said. A vector has a direction and a magnitude (strength).

I don't think anyone ever talked about anti-matter annihilation except Dan Brown. + this is not a real question as no one can answer it. I would vote to close.

No, because you won't be able to accelerate it to higher energy, because this other particle is heavier and then if you accelerate it with say the LHC, you would need a higher magnetic field, which you don't have.
