Maybe something like "lets go nuclear"? So everything what uses nuclear propulsion/power systems, for example nuclear powered home equipment, cars up to military vessels or even space crafts


I like this! Can we go beyond just Nuclear propulsion though?

My fav for subs, new generation batteries that have superior energy density than diesel, i.e. a submarine that gets more range out of her batteries than she can out of diesels.

Another idea:  the Mars GB.  Basically, you somehow involve the planet Mars in your entry.  I don't care if it is based on mars, involves martians coming to Earth, is a space flyby of Mars, is a retelling/model inspired by a book or movie on Mars...just in involve this baby in it:

No Mars. It's a silly place, despite the movie. All the cool kids are going to Titan, Enceladus, Europa or the asteroids.

First thing that crossed my mind when I read the Mars suggestion was a White Star flying nap of the earth (Mars) from Babylon 5

Planet theme is clever  :)

What about a "rebuilt/Reuse/Recycle" taking a built kit and refurbing it into something else or modifying it?
