Re: Star Ship Polaris

Personally, I like the shape. It's simple, basic and robust - all pluses when dealing with lugging extra mass around on a spaceship. I like how it's mostly protected when docked.

Lifting bodies make sense with a nice, dense atmosphere like Earth's - less so for planets with thin or no atmosphere.

And I like the homage to the Apollo capsule - intentional or not.

Glad to see more updates - I love the Polaris, it's a splendid design!
