    ISP figure corrected...it is 14500 s at its best.

    This is bigger now...a bit heavier than shuttle but smaller.

    If you wanna make it profitabale the tickets must be pretty expensive as the fuel alone ís 6-7 million euros.

    My claim is here. Based on limited amount of calculations.

    Some tuning to get more Delta-V for the LEO with initial booster/mothership.

    You have to do 25 trips to Mars with T-bird 2 ( on send one every week for 5 months ) to get 100 people on Mars like Elon Musk is doing with one shot.

    Hello!

    Fanny thing happened on this design today. I counted if it could land on Mars.... The mothership...and it could at 200 km/t speed only. As it has 1/3 wing loading of the space Shuttle....and the Mars gravity is just 38%. How come nobody realized this...on fumes it can land on Mars at 100 mph.

    This is a win win situation...even if the mothership crashes a bit the orbiter can sent the lander to pickem 2 pilots up. Plane could have the stuff to start a colony whole 30 metric ton of it. Also the mothership could be a shelter as it is.
