This project is solving the Create Your Own Asteroid Mission challenge.


What is the aim of this project? The aim of this project is to present an idea of a mission concept to bring back the C-Type Asteroid Specimen back to the Earth.

How the project is going to be done? The idea of a mission concept will be presented in two parts, which is; (1) sketch design of a spacecraft embedded to an asteroid storage. (2) simulator of a spacecraft.

What are the tools used in this project? For part 1, the sketch design required only papers, mechanical pencil and of course the imaginative idea! For part 2, the spacecraft simulator is an open source downloaded from the Orbiter and Celestia. Both part explained in a prezi presentation and a word documentation attached.
