Planet 9 is an object assumed to be around 20 times further away from the sun than Neptune, meaning it will not reflect very much light making it hard to find. It has also been suggested that Planet 9 could even be a black hole!
Our goal is to write a mission proposal and create a CAD model of the spacecraft. Besides understanding how current deep space missions work and which power supplies are used, we will also focus on the scientific requirements and payload to be used on this spacecraft.
Follow along as we develop our mission!
