Sarah Abouelkhair: This success story is not what you think it is.

Move along Elon, there’s a new sheriff in space town.

In the past few years, Space X emerged as the frontrunner for the 21st century space race. The brainchild of Elon Musk beat the likes of Boeing, to become the aerospace juggernaut it is today. However, the visionary entrepreneur experienced a dry spell the past month, which culminated in him asking his twitter followers for the dankest of memes.

But while he’s sorting things out, an Egyptian architecture student took it upon herself to solve world hunger. Sarah Abouelkhair devised a plan centered on the construction of a giant grill placed under one of NASA’s rockets. The heat from the vessel, would help cook whatever food is on the said grill. So basically, it’s a giant BBQ party.img

When Sarah shared her idea on Instagram, she never expected a serious response, but the impossible happened. NASA invited the Egyptian student to their next launch as a token of appreciation. The story quickly became viral as she shared more celebrity DMs from Ellen DeGeneres to Gordon Ramsay. One could say that Sarah became the embodiment of the dare to dream mentality. img Except… none of it is real. img   It turned out this was a joke between Sarah and her friends. And what started as fun games quickly turned into a social experiment. While many took to twitter to criticize the young student, suggesting she did it to gain fame, we believe that her social experiment was successful. Most media outlets that reported the story, never bothered with due diligence. They jumped on the bandwagon with no regard to fact checking. But they’re not the only ones to blame. Social media users should be more cautious of what they believe and share. Post-truth era already dawned on us, and it is our collective responsibility to curb the fake news. So next time you come across something too bizarre to be true, it probably is … except for Elon and his memes, that’s the real deal.
