Annihilation is the total transformation of mass into massless energy radiation. Annihilation takes place when particles of matter and antimatter collide with each other. They practically vanish as all their mass is transformed into particles of radiation like photons, pions, and kaons[1]. Annihilation is the most effective energy transformation known to mankind.

Antimatter engines let matter and antimatter annihilate under controlled conditions. They use the radiation energy set free by annihilation to accelerate the propellant mass out of the thrusters[2].
