The Hyperion Fleet, Ready to depart for Mars

This shows the “Hyperion” design by Krafft Ehricke, a staged nuclear crewed mission to Mars, intended to go as a small fleet for safety. I added some “space taxis” so the crew could move between the craft if required. I did a blog post about it here: https://nick-stevens.com/2017/08/04/krafft-ehrickes-hyperion-manned-nuclear-mars-mission/

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failled to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I am currently on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digitals using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Photoshop Elemnts, Affinity Photo. I also ejoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, aqnd others.
