    Hey everyone,

    This is my final design. The vehicle is best described as a modular 'road'train that is capable of driving on both solid or high-viscosity liquid surfaces. The individual modules of the train can be used to carry either cargo or passengers, depending on the purpose of its journey.
    Each module is powered by a sterling-type engine, using the temperature differential between the hot planet's surface (specially the lava) and the air above the vehicle to generate motion.

    Regards,

    ControColpo

    The Alien Lava Vehicle:
    The Wheels are combined with a propeller system that helps push the vehicle out of the lava as it moves. They are made from a composite of ceramics and asbestos and some other more exotic materials that allow them to be submerged in the magma without melting. The wheels are also the engine system of the vehicle. The open center of the wheels let the lava heat the piston system that forces them to turn around.

    The ribbed sides are to maximise surface area and ensure better heat disipation to the atmosphere. In case of extra hot conditions the vehicle can extend it's cooling rods and shed even more heat.

    Lava River Skimmer

    Hey Everyone,

    New member here. I saw this contest and thought it would be fun to try out. My entry is a small hovering lava skimmer that uses energy fields to help protect the vehicle from sudden eruptions and flying debris.

    The ALV uses the lava to heat up water inside its frontal pads, the steam from which jets through pipes to turbines, generating the energy needed to power its thrusters and thus stay afloat. It is a standard model employed to ferry passengers around the lava fields.
