19-year-old girl in Egypt invents a spacecraft propulsion device

A 19-year-old Egyptian university student called
Aisha Mustafa has invented a propulsion device intended to offer
spacecrafts a new method and cheaper means of energy consumption.

The propulsion device promises chances of using quantum physics and
chemical reactions in artificial satellites, instead of the current
radioactive-based jets and ordinary rocket engines.

Mustafa’s device is based on a scientific mix between quantum physics, space technology, chemical reactions and electrical sciences.

Mustafa said the inventions generates energy for space vehicles from electric
energy formed by Casimir-polder force, which occurs between separate
surfaces and objects in a vacuum and by the zero-point energy considered
as the lowest state of energy.

The device uses reflective panels for additional f

  • Maybe with a better description I'd be interested. This is all bullshit. Give me some specs and legitimate physics instead of "it's quantum physics, space technology, chemical reactions and electrical sciences.".

    Bullshit.

    Er, which radioactive-based jets would they be?

    Sounds like Muslim-poop to me...

    • @pauliec17

      Don't dismiss it so fast. They are not reffering to engines, but power sources. And, yes, they have been using radioactive tech since the sixties. Google 'Transit 4A satellite, for example.

      The only poop I see here is the phrasing of the news piece. The one who wrote it has little idea of science.

    • @mcgus Yeah, they were referring to engines.

      "or chemical reactions rockets propelled by solid or liquid fuels such as radionuclide or petroleum."

      I don't know what engines they're trying to refer to. The shuttle engines were fueled by cryogenic hydrogen and oxygen.

      Might be trying to refeer to ion drive (rockets).

  • Right...

    So you've figured out how to create electricity by using the Casimir effect, awesome if it's possible. But, how does that translate to movement in space?

    Also, wtf is a reflective photovoltaic cell? You turned a mirror into a solar cell? WTF?

  • I just had a large shot of Crown Royal and chased it with a dark Lager Beer after eating a cheese biscuit from Red Lobster. At 09:20 hrs.

    The above statement is more believable and interesting than the post.

  • I find it hilarious that the author of this article wanted to throw in as many scientific references as possible, and probably doesn't understand half of them.

    • @DirtyUncleBerty I find your response extremely amusing. Did I ever say stupid? I don't think so.

      Read the entire comment before wasting your time responding like an ignorant person.
