starship-design: Casimir-Foreward balloon

Hello Connor,

Zenon thank you for giving a clear description, answering my initial
questions. Connor I assume you agree with it, since you have not commented

Connor, can you tell me exactly all points where the "momentum is
transferred" or "the force is applied" or "the energy is exchanged" from
the photons to the ship?
Thus where do the photons or where does the beam push or pull?
