Mars-Project Orange Book

May 30, 2002


You're invited to our new web site, "Project Orange Book."  It's dedicated to the investigation of the challenges of a manned deep space expedition - to Mars, and beyond. First, the technical challenges are studied, and the conceptual design of an advanced spacecraft is developed from the principles of Celestial Mechanics. Then there is some FREE software (and source code) for optimizing the Earth to Mars trajectory; for designing buildings on Mars; and a discussion of some of the medical challenges of Deep Space exploration.


I hope you have a chance to visit.
