CfM2: Mars Lander Final DescentThe final descent of the Mars lander vehicles is slowed by parachutes and soft landing is provided by rocket engines. The lander in the foreground is a two-stage rocket which will be refueled with carbon monoxide for ascent from Mars, landing on with its primary stage rockets.
CfM2: Leaving MarsA crew departs the surface of Mars while a replacement crew lands. With proper mission phasing, a Mars base can be occupied continuously. A two-stage ascent rocket must be used due to the lower performance of the carbon monoxide fuel which was produced from the local Martian atmosphere. Designed during a Mission design workshop during the "Case for Mars 2" conference in Boulder, Colorado, USA, July 1984.
