3DSpace X Mars Express

Space X Mars shuttle braking into Mars parking orbit.

Powered by a Linear Fusion Gasdynamic Mirror Engine it's able to complete a 170 day round trip between Earth and Mars on a standard Brachistochrone trajectory (accelerating to 50% distance then flipping around and decelerating for the remaining 50%).

This specific ship has been contracted by the Chinese government to transport workers for the Mars Elevator construction programme. It will be met in Mars orbit by a fleet of small shuttles to re-supply and perform basic maintenance before the trip back to Earth.

    This is very cool - reminds me of the shuttle in the movie Outland from 1981 with Sean Connery
