posted by admin on December 12, 2009

Project Icarus is a theoretical design study with the aim of designing a credible interstellar probe that will serve as a concept design for a potential unmanned mission that could be launched before then end of the 21st century. Icarus will utilise fusion based engine technology which would accelerate the spacecraft to approximately 10% the speed of light.
