Re: Mission to Mars

This is why I support SLS. Even the Musk/Tito flyby mission will be cramped, not unlike the plan the Russians have to go to the Moon:

Different versions:

NEP, the Bekuo

NTR

I'm a Nuclear Thermal guy myself--I like that better, and dates back farther

The war is on: NEP vs NTR

Sad to see little camps fight.

civilian vs military
public vs private
winged vs ballistic
solid vs liquid
pressure-fed vs pump-fed
manned vs robotic
solar vs nuclear
NTR vs NEP
Moon vs Mars

Can't we all just get along?
