19 year old Aisha Mustafa has invented a propulsion device which could very well result in a cheaper means of energy consumption for spacecrafts. What have you done today?
She's a student at Sohag University, and she invented the propulsion device that eschews radioactive based jet and rocket engine set up for quantum physics and chemical reactions. It generates energy from electric energy using the Casimir polder force, which occurs between separate surfaces and objects in a vacuum.
Sounds like she could be the mother of future Star Trek like space travel here! This is also a huge improvement over rocket fuel based models that rely on solid and liquid fuels.
Mustafa said the next step is testing it at with a major scientific research organization and one day hopefully bringing it practically into space missions
