This is a big thing – quantum space-propulsion! Not only important as one of the first potential applications of quantum theory in common technology, but also cheaper and cleaner than current rocket propulsion systems essential in bringing satellites into orbit (without them, no mobile internet). Sadly, Egypt is not the best place for an aspiring young scientist to ramp up. Anyone up to help this gal get funding, mentoring, etc.?
