Promoting Egyptian nanotech

And writing nonsense papers. That's exactly where I want him to spend his time. Please, don't anyone ask him for his help with nuclear reactor design. He'd be trying to do it with E-infinity theory. Really.

A commenter here once noted

El Naschie is an engineer. I thought engineers are usually taught in vector calculus? How can an engineer not know what a vector is?
I do not want El Naschie to construct a house or a bridge or a mechanical device.

And another a while back linked to the abstract of this paper:

Estimating the eigenvalue of fast reactors and cantorian space

M.S. El Naschie, and S. Al Athel

DAMTP, University of Cambridge, Silver Street, Cambridge CB3 9EW, England, UK

KACST, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Accepted 28 April 1999. Available online 23 June 2000.


Using the formalism of modern reactors theory we drive [sic] the critical eigenvalue for fast neutron reactions, subsequently we show how E-infinity Cantorian space formulation leads to simple accurate prediction of these eigenvalues.

The graphic, by the way, is not of nuclear waste in a pool. It's a Portugese reactor that has just been switched on after a conversion from high to low enriched uranium. The blue glow is presumably Cerenkov radiation, which is caused by particles moving through the water faster than the speed of light (in that medium).

  1. BTW: Does anybody know what happens to the article in NATURE? Will it ever reappear?

  2. We have the text of it here:

  3. Actually, the co-author S. Al Athel of the eigenvalue of fast reactors and cantorian space paper is Prof. Saleh Abdul Rahman Al-Athel, who served as the President of the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, from 1983 to 2007.

  4. Thank you. Yes, I hope it's right now. There were some superscripts I should have removed from the names when I copied.
