Topic: Methane Ice Miner
Deadline: Sunday, May 6
Methane ice, also known as fire ice, or more scientifically as methane clathrate, is a material which is being explored as a large scale source of natural gas. However, this material does not occur only on Earth. It may occur in any situation with low temperatures, water and methane (yes, this means space). As such, you are tasked with creating a methane ice miner. Because of the generally remote and inhospitable areas in which this substance occurs, this with have to be a robot of some sort.
When designing, be clear as to what environment this ice is found and is being mined from. Adjust the design to meet the potential requirements of traveling to the mining site, whether that site is vacuum, terrestrial, or aquatic, and how the ice is either processed or returned to a processing plant.
1. Design and draw a Methane Ice Miner.
2. That's it... now draw!
