excellent I expected the idea to stall at least once, but I am very glad to see that it has not died. Now that I have (more or less) regular internet access I will be able to participate more.

If the skycrane is delivering the OSHV to the Martian surface and then back to orbit than we simply need to find out how much the OSHV is going to weigh.

Before the development of a custom IDMS system I think we should first figure out how much the MTV+OSHV+skycrane+reentry capsules is going to weigh. Seeing as skycrane mass depends on OSHV mass and OSHV, reentry capsule, and supplies/storage mass depends on crew size, how many crew members did we decide on?

I think it had been 8.

The Skycrane is technically unmanned, it will thus scale pretty well with payload mass alone.

Looking at the current status of MarkP's Mars Design Reference Mission 1, I'm thinking it would be cool to do an OFSS-III-ish Mars project using that when it releases. No special development, fairly laid-back. Any interested?

I'm not sure how OFMM had passed me back in spring, I sure like the idea and would be interested.

If meshing is ever need, I could do that too.

I would be interested in piloting the crucial first mission.

And what is the first mission? This thread was started in May and I've not actually seen a concrete plan to get to Mars and certainly not a breakdown of the required missions or even the mode of mission that is planned.

Secondly, you have a VSA so are you planning on doing these Mars missions as part of that or something seperate?
