Aisha Mustafa is a 19-year-old Egyptian university student of physics who can transform space travel once and for all!
She has namely invented an ingenious spacecraft propulsion device that can send mankind boldly where no man has gone before.
Her amazing propulsion device has potential to send spacecraft to other solar systems without using a single drop of fuel.
Instead, the device utilizes the best quantum physics and chemical reactions in artificial satellites have to offer.
In other words, forget current radioactive-based jets and ordinary rocket engines! What Mustafa offers is future space technology
that is badly needed if we truly want to explore space!
Aisha Mustafa, a very intelligent student of physics who can change the way we explore space.
Mustafa's engine idea is based on quantum facts that there's no such thing as a vacuum, devoid of particles, waves, and energy.
Instead the Universe's supposedly empty spaces are filled with a roiling sea of particles and anti-particles that pop into existence,
then annihilate each other in such a short space of time that you can't readily detect them.
Illustration of the dynamical Casimir Effect.
Mustafa said that this quantum effect can be harnessed via the dynamic Casimir effect.
This utilizes a "moving mirror" cavity, where two reflective flat plates are held close together and then manipulated in order to interact with the
By moving the plates (which are made of silicon), energy is created out of nothing and a net force is created which would be used to push, pull or propel a
Mustafa also says energy should be used like solar power because it is much more efficient than rocket fuel that is currently used to power spacecrafts.
Rockets like Dragon X for example are difficult to control due to the energetic thrusters, and even NASA's futuristic proposals such as ion drives
still need power. Even Star Trek's USS Enterprise needs dilithium crystals.
The potential of Mustafa's propulsion system is enormous because of its mechanical simplicity and reliability it could make satellite propulsion lighter, cheaper,
and thus indirectly lower the cost of space missions of all sorts.
This is just what the space industry needs, but where is the money?
Mustafa who studies at the Sohag University has patented her propulsion system in the Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology -
ASRT, but she is worried that there's no funding for a department of space science and this prevents important research being carried out in strife-ridden Egypt.
"Departments of astronomy and physics are only available. Although they are related to space sciences but unfortunately they aren't into the
specific field of my invention and they can't practically test or implement it, Mustafa said in an interview on "Sabah El Kheir Ya Masr" (Good Morning Egypt)
a famous Egyptian television show.
According to an Egyptian TV channel, "Egypt 25", Mustafa's supervisor, Dr. Ahmed Fikry, who heads the physics department in Sohag University, has shown great
interest in his student's invention and helped her patent it in the ASRT. "I expect this invention to be highly beneficial in several fields and areas of
industries," he assured.
On his behalf, the President of Sohag University, Dr. Nabil Nour Eldin Abdellah, said that the university facilitates what he called "Science Clubs"
for intelligent and creative students who have the will and capabilities to come up with innovative scientific ideas.
"Once we knew about her (Mustafa's) invention, we encouraged her and provided her with the budget needed through the Science Club for innovative
students in the university. This is the case with any other creative student," Abdellah explained.
Mustafa nowadays aims at testing her invention at major scientific research organisations, hence the possibility of applying it in upcoming space missions.
In the next coming decades, space travel would be easier, safer, faster and cheaper, thanks to the mind of an intelligent Egyptian girl.
Alien World That Contributes To The Vision Of Hell
There is a strange alien planet orbiting an orange dwarf star in the constellation Monoceros
bordered by the constellations of Canis Minor, Gemini, Hydra, Lepus, Orion and Puppis and located 490 light years away...
it, is truly beautiful and relaxing!
Is Our Galaxy Squared?
To determine the true shape of our galaxy is a complex task.
The Milky Way keeps challenging astronomers who now say that some of our galaxy's spiral arms are straight rather than curved.
New research suggests that the shape of our galaxy is different than previously thought!
Flying Cars - Incredible Technology Of The Future
A flying car can travel on roads and can take off, fly, and land as an aircraft.
These vehicles have previously been seen only in science fiction
movies, but with new technology quickly emerging, flying cars are becoming reality. However, this does not mean you should sell your car just yet!
Millennia Old Astronomical Secret Revealed
In 1943, an ancient papyrus was bought by the Cairo museum.
It was written in Hieratic and although portions of it were eaten away by ants, it was a very precious ancient document.
The papyrus contained three separate books dealing with astronomy. One of the books was the Cairo Calendar, and now it reveals an ancient astronomical secret...
Big Bang Machine Discovers Unknown Particle
Physicists at Cern have not yet been able to confirm the existence of
the elusive "God particle", but they have nevertheless made another interesting discovery
Scientists announced that the Large Hadron Collider, often referred to as the Big Bang machine has detected an unknown particle composed of three quarks.
Star Trek Tricorder Now Available Online For Anyone To Build!
Imagine you can see what cannot be seen. Wouldn't you want to actually be able to see beyond the visible?
The good news is that from now on it will be possible to see things we have previously only dreamt of.
We certainly live in exciting times. More and more devices that have long been considered pure science fiction are now quickly becoming reality.
Oldest Alien Worlds Discovered - Born At Dawn Of Universe
A group of European astronomers has discovered an ancient planetary system that is likely to be a survivor from one of the earliest cosmic eras, 13 billion years ago.
The system consists of the star HIP 11952 and two planets, which have orbital periods of 290 and 7 days, respectively.
Living Earth Simulator - Supercomputer Predicting The Future
In Douglas Adams book the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy we encounter a machine called Deep Thought. It is the most powerful computer ever built. Deep Thought is capable of answering questions
concerning life, the Universe, and simply everything. Now scientists are planning to create a similar machine. It is called the Living Earth Simulator (LES).
