^Ah, a pdf from before constellation was cancelled. Just another powerpoint presentation. Get back to me when they start implementing something resembling Direct.
The bottom line is that whenever they are ordered to prepare a manned Mission to Mars the Design Reference Mission will be where they start from and it is Mars Direct derived.
No. That's where they would have started from had the entire program not been scrapped.
The NASA Design Reference Mission Was around a decade BEFORE Constellation.
