EUREKA 1 (Deep Space Probe)


The product idea I am submitting is called the Eureka 1 (Deep Space Probe), My inspiration for this idea was early spacecraft from the 1960's and 1970's. The Eureka is a light weight spacecraft design with emphasis on efficiency for long duration spaceflight, I incorporated two rotating cylinders which could generate a electrical charge to maintain the Ion electric engine the powers the spacecraft. Upon arrival to a alien planet,  the orbiter will detach from the main spacecraft and maintain a low orbit around the planet, if any indication of life is found. The orbiter would signal the lander to land on the planet for a closer look.What will the Eureka find ?
