The webinar by Joe Cassady, the first one in the Monthly Webinar series that Explore Mars, Inc. launched in July, is online.
On July 14, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. Joe Cassady (Aerojet – Executive Director, Washington, DC Office) presented a lecture called,
Aerojet Heavy Lift Propulsion Technology Architecture for Human Exploration
during which he outlined a new mission architecture proposal that Aerojet has designed that will not only enable us to land humans on Mars by the early 2030s, but will also reach several intermediate destinations such as a long-term orbital mission of the Moon, a mission to the surface of a Near Earth Object, and a surface mission to the Martian moon Phobos, making this architecture resemble the Gemini-Apollo architecture of the sixties and seventies.
“This is one of the most promising architectures that I have seen so far,” stated Explore Mars Executive Director, Chris Carberry. “It sets achievable and ambitious goals, and does it affordably.”
This architecture is also outlined by Cassady in the summer edition of Mars Exploration Magazine (MEM) in an article called:
“Traveling to Mars on Less Than 4 Cents Per Day – A Feasible and Affordable Architecture.”
The MEM article can be read online (page 12 of Mars Exploration Magazine #3) here.
