someone actually did it in REAL LIFE.

Wait.

MORE THAN ONE theoretically reality-based group has, actually, used the name "Project Icarus."

MIT, you're supposed to be smarter than that!

Beyond those, I'm actually surprised to see how few examples TV Tropes has come up with: an orbital mirror system from a James Bond film (falls), not one but two ships from a sci-fi B-movie called Sunshine (destroyed by literally getting too close to the sun), the ship which carried Sheridan's wife to Z'ha'dum on Babylon 5 (captured, all aboard dead or suborned), and a project name from Stargate Universe (literally blows up). Of course, I know they're missing the X-Files reference, so the list is obviously incomplete.

If I ever make a sci-fi film, I'm totally naming a ship "Balder." It will be captained by Agamemnon Q. Icarus. And then it will go through the entire movie utterly unmolested.
