Quantum Space Propulsion ?

I just came across this article and found it pretty interesting. I'm sure the science people here might know more about the actual workings on such a theory/contraption (and whether it is bullshit or not), but it just seemed cool and futuristic to me!

Remember the name, because you might see it again: Aisha Mustafa, a 19-year-old Egyptian physics student, patented a new type of propulsion system for spacecraft that uses cutting edge quantum physics instead of thrusters.

That's amazing. There are so many phenomenal scientific/technological discoveries that we hear little about.

i shared that article with a buddy of mine thats done all sorts through uni for physics and maths.

it got him excited and sure enough he did some digging himself, about an hr ago he got back to me and he said essentialy "man iam really impressed and cant wait to see it hopefully progress as she is onto "something" "

we always assume breakthroughs and advances will occur in britain/america/aus ect but geniuses are born everywhere! such a shame about the lack of funding there. Hopefully someone like branson ect snap her up and give her some funding.

sounds as likely as perpetual motion.

Yeah these physicists sometimes get worse than a crackhead on a 3 day bender.

Sounds legit.

Nice, sad but not surprising that she can't get funding in Egypt though. Send that bitch to NASA, science bitches love NASA.

And many we will never hear about.

i remember seeing a video about how american scientists had an idea to put plasma rockets in spacecraft, it was something like a few days to get to uranus i think, but it worked sort of like a reverse rocket. so it wouldn't work on earth in the atmosphere.
