Spacecraft Propulsion Device Invented by 19-year Old Student

Spacecraft Propulsion Device Invented by 19-year Old Student
By: Amanda Froelich, True Activist. With passion to persevere and see a project succeed, anything is possible. This is certainly true for a young student in the Middle East.Aisha Mustafa, a 19-year old female student from the University of Sohag in Egypt, recently developed a new type of propulsion system for space crafts. The new system exploits the quirky law of quantum physics which states “there is no such thing as a vacuum devoid of particles, and energy”. annihilate each other in such a short amount of time they cannot be easily detected. For her invention, Mustafa developed a way of tapping this quantum effect, which is also known as the dynamic Casimir effect. Mustafa’s device differs from current methods of initiating movement in space. The potential of this new design is enormous. Many scientists and staff at the University were enthusiastic about her invention and supported the application process to patent the invention with resources, materials, and support.

Mystery of Earth’s Radiation Belts Solved Ron Cowen | Naturenews | Jul 29 2013 The two concentric rings of high-speed particles that encircle the Earth are finally giving up the secrets of their origin — 55 years after their discovery. Two NASA probes have found evidence that the Van Allen belts, as the rings are known, are responsible for accelerating the particles, rather than collecting energetic particles that originated elsewhere. Space scientists think that their latest findings1 could also account for the even more energetic belts circling Saturn and Jupiter, as well as high-energy radiation associated with worlds beyond the Solar System and even some Sun-like stars. For several years after 1958 — when space scientist James Van Allen and his colleagues identified the radiation belts that now bear his name, using instruments aboard the first US space mission — researchers theorized that the rings’ electrons came from distant reaches of Earth’s magnetosphere, the bubble of space dominated by the planet’s magnetic field.

Civilians in Abandoned McDonald’s Seize Control of Wandering Space Satellite Their mission control console is a refurbished flat screen and some parts found on eBay. Yes, this is really happening. By Jack Smith IV 8/08 2:38pm Share this: The McMoon’s team outside of mission control. For the first time in history, an independent crew is taking control of a NASA satellite and running a crowdfunded mission. “If I could come up with another absurd detail, I would,” Keith Cowing, the project’s team lead, told Betabeat. The ISEE-3 is a disco-era satellite that used to measure space weather like solar wind and radiation, but went out of commission decades ago. Mr. The satellite’s battery has been dead for over 20 years, but it had solar panels to power 98 percent of the satellite’s full capabilities. Since the satellite went offline, the team had retired, the documentation was lost and the equipment became outdated. Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico. But the satellite had been built for longevity with very simple technology. “What’s so hard about that?” McMoon’s Undo Babbel

Einstein's math may also describe faster-than-light velocities Although Einstein's theories suggest nothing can move faster than the speed of light, two scientists have extended his equations to show what would happen if faster-than-light travel were possible.

"We started thinking about it, and we think this is a very natural extension of Einstein's equations," said applied mathematician James Hill, who co-authored the new paper with his University of Adelaide, Australia, colleague Barry Cox. Special relativity, proposed by Albert Einstein in 1905, showed how concepts like speed are all relative: A moving observer will measure the speed of an object to be different than a stationary observer will.

NASA's Android-powered mini-satellites What could you do with $3500 and an old smartphone? You could toss the phone, take the cash, and buy yourself the next best smartphone. Or, with a bit of a DIY attitude, you could push the limits of this hefty piece of technology and use it to power something else. That's the initial idea of the PhoneSat project, a small satellite project run by a team of engineers at NASA's Ames Research Center. The PhoneSat team has built and developed two small satellite models powered by Android smartphones, with the rest of the body constructed mostly of things you could buy at your nearest hardware store. At a 2009 meeting of the International Space University's Space Studies Program, a group of young engineering students had a big idea: Why not try to develop a cheap satellite-control system using mostly off-the-shelf consumer technology items? The idea is relatively simple. The units themselves are small—compact enough to fit in your hand.

Stanley Kubrick Admits He Helped NASA Fake Moon Landings In New Film? A new film by filmmaker T. Patrick Murray has recently surfaced in which famed director Stanley Kubrick allegedly gives an interview admitting that the moon landings were faked. The interview took place 3 days prior to Kubrick’s death on March 7th 1999, and Murray was told he could not release the footage until 15 years after Kubricks’ death. He was allegedly forced to sign an 88-page NDA to keep the contents of the interview a secret for those years, and Murray states that, in accordance with this ruling, in 48 hours he will release the full edit. This should be Dec 11th 2015. [3] Why all the ‘alleged’ talk? “A, a, a, a massive fraud. “There are great ideas, undiscovered breakthroughs available, to those who can remove one of truth’s protective layers.” – –Neil Armstrong, allegedly the first man on the moon Background Story I should mention that I have been looking into the moon landings for years. “Well, yes, but because basically I was bribed. The Space Race History of Apollo Program

We Went to the Moon. By David Chandler and Don Davis | by David Chandler | Sep, 2022 | Medium By David Chandler and Don Davis The belief that the Apollo landings were a hoax seems to increase with each new generation to emerge since the Moon landings took place. We are half way from the time of Apollo 11 to the time when no one with living memories of that event will remain. Many objections have been raised to the authenticity of the Apollo program, ranging from claims about the lethality of the Van Allen belts, to various photographic issues, to supposed odd behavior of the returned astronauts. Our approach here will not be to go down the list of supposed anomalies and debunk them all one at a time. What our goal is here is to present the affirmative case for the authenticity of the Apollo program. There are several strong lines of evidence that all six of the moon landings did in fact take place. 1. 2. 3. 1.
