For eISR 2020, we have decided to rename our submarine to Icarus. In Greek mythology, Icarus was given a set of wings to escape Crete and fly between the sea and the sun. Like its namesake, Icarus was built to escape the propeller realm and hope to fly low enough to remain below the surface. Icarus also fits this submarine as the team was warned to stay away from non-propeller submarines as they were “too difficult”. The name represents our desire to follow our beliefs and take confidence within ourselves to take flight and create Icarus.
Stay tuned for further updates!
