    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    I think your on to something with this lander. I would move the ring of fuel tanks to the bottom and they would somewhat be the size of the service module. it would need landing windows and would launch on a Falcon heavy. I see a space tug has been done so dock with a manned Dragon and land on...

    OHM Deep Space Crew Dragon

    Ok just asked guys down the hall and they said it will take about 20 Starship fuel flights to do a lander mission. So Artemis is dead. maybe just keep paying for SLS but don't use it. here's a couple of landers that might work. Both could do a direct flight back to Earth

    OHM Deep Space Crew Dragon

    gattis did a version of the " octopus " that might would work however it would dock to the front. this hab also has fold out solar panels. Could also be used for a mission to an asteroid and dock with it

    OHM Deep Space Crew Dragon

    From the movie "The Right Stuff " made a comet of no bucks no Buck Rodgers. The Apollo guys figured that out so thats how Apollo was built. The Geldman commission had Sally Ride show charts of how Constellation would fail and if we saw those same charts for Artemis you would see that it's a "...

    OHM Deep Space Crew Dragon

    Yes I agree about the cabin for the lander , no heat shield or reentry gear so more room for fuel or supplies . I liked the idea that Lockheed Martin had by using a version of Orion as the ascent cabin. This makes more sense and a Falcon heavy could send a fueled decent Stage to dock with the...

    OHM Deep Space Crew Dragon

    I think it would be fun to create a Dragón that could land on the Moon. It would need Solar panels to track the sun some kind of legs, The door would need to fold down and deploy a ladder and some form of a HGA or lazar for coms. the nose cone would detach and a propulsion unit could get...

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    Hey that is a pretty neat idea. I wonder if you could land on the Moon using the same profile as the F9 first stage with a short deorbit burn followed by a slow down burn then the landing burn. Seems like a way to save on fuel . I did see a pic of a Dragon 2 landed on the Moon with the same...

    New Release Crew Dragon DM2

    The lunar dragon to land would need a deorbit system and the Draco's for the final landing burn. It would need legs as well instead of the little wings it would need fold out solar panels like Dragon 1 and the hatch would open down and a ladder comes out. I saw a ring of gold tanks with an...

    Surface Base Apollo Landing Site Sceneries for Orbiter 2016

    you might look to do the planned landing site for Apollo 14 just west of Apollo 17

    OHM Better ISS

    Thanks for the pic of the free flyer. NASA looked at flying something like that where they could change out the pallets somewhat like the HST reserving missions. After the Challenger it was the only piece of Freedom left in the budget and was too be called the " Sally Ride" EOS
