I recently realised that I hadn’t blogged this design, which I did a few years ago. I realised this after seeing an image I had provided of it for a board game had been bodged onto a new background, and looked awful. So I figured I should get my version online ASAP!
This is a serious NASA design for a nuclear craft capable of reaching Mars.
Note the Bigelow style habitat module, the “Nerva” style engines, and (my addition) European ATV. I also added the ISS cupola, as I figured the crew would appreaciate the view! 🙂
Here’s a view of the habitat end:
And a version of the perspective free title image, that you can enlarge.

Wonderful renditions. Thank you.
