Count me on board!

Antimatter (as of yet) are virtually impossible to harvest and contain in huge quantities.

PET scans produce antimatter, it's also made at CERN in tiny quantities. The problem with containing Antimatter is that it can't touch anything that is matter (including air) so it'd be very expensive producing and containing it on Earth.
