The implementation of laser-created subatomic black holes (Schwarzschild Kugelblitzes or SKs) as propulsive and power sources for interstellar starships has been presented in the literature [l]. SKs with life expectancies of only several years resulting from petawatt Hawking Radiation suggest the appeal of a mechanism to "re-inflate" the SK. This paper calculates the absorption cross-sections and absorption probabilities of attometer Schwarzschild Kugelblitzes, and demonstrates the need for incoming inflating particles to have an energy in the TeV-PeV range. The interaction between collimated re-inflating fermions and the instantaneous spectrum of Hawking radiation, and the challenges associated with subnuclear-scale beam collimation are examined.
