Default Re: [Spaceships] Anti-Lithium for Drives Does this work?

The Saturn V first stage was kerosene/LOX because thrust is limited by how much fuel you can burn per time and pumps are volume based. So kerosene was more fuel per second because it was denser. You might have a similar limit that makes anti-lithium. Upper stages were hydrogen/LOX because that gets more delta-V per mass.
