Project Icarus, A Study of Interstellar Flight


Project Icarus, sponsored by the Tau Zero Foundation and the British Interplanetary Society, is a study of the possibility of interstellar flight. That is, can it be done? If so, how would one go about designing such a craft, and what are the implications of building such a craft?

Project Icarus aims to answer these questions, and to re-evaluate the findings of the previous Project Daedalus, which took place in 1973-1978. Have we come any closer to being able to realize an interstellar probe? From the Project Icarus blog:

"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 the end of the 21st century. Icarus will utilise fusion based engine technology which would accelerate the spacecraft to approximately 10% to 20% the speed of light."

So check out the Project Icarus blog, and subscribe, as I've already done.

Clear skies!

Invitation to promote Your Blog on my Site…



Hi ,my name is Roger Bail from Quebec Canada.

in the near future…if I have enough astronomy bloggers interested
in posting in my guide.

The posting would be free of charge and all is ask is that you send

of your page. No one else would have permission to post articles
on your page…only their comments.

I plan to start creating the “Astronomy Blog Guide” in july if I
have enough candidates.

With regards to the financing cost of auto title credits, rates depend on nearby, state and government laws. Nearby, State and Federal governments have the specialist to direct these rates too. Because of this, take note of that auto title crediting firms are in strict adherence to these laws and controls. Cash Advance Costa-mesa
