- Project Icarus
Project Icarus is a volunteer theoretical engineering study to design an interstellar spacecraft. The project was launched on September 30th 2009 at the British Interplanetary Society HQ in London, and is a five year study. The purpose of Project Icarus is four-fold: 1. To motivate a new generation of scientists in designing space missions that can explore beyond our solar system. 2. To generate greater interest in the real term prospects for interstellar precursor missions that are based on credible science. 3. To design a credible interstellar probe that is a concept design for a potential mission in the coming centuries so as to allow a direct technology comparison with Daedalus and to provide an assessment of the maturity of fusion based space propulsio
