Default Not rockets, but art.

Mars Awaits. A piece I displayed at a recent space art show.

I am curious. Will Elon Musk plant a USA flag on mars? I think yes.

Mars a place so hostile it makes the Atacama desert look like a tropical Paradise.

The only bad thing about me never having a divorce is that I can't say, "Sounds just like my ex wife." <insert rimshot here>

Lol!


Shrox, I looked long and hard for at least a tiny nod toward the Estes Mars Lander beyond the general layout of your landers. I was looking for a little number 4 or something from the decals to be slipped in unnoticed. It looks great and the landers themselves homage enough!

BTW, what's the logo on your exposure suit? I can't see enough detail but its general shape looks like a ML logo!

It's the USAA logo from 2001.

Very nice artwork.

How did they get there? On a Musk, Bezos, or Boeing rocket?

An older book, but the future-alternate-history story of a mission to Mars always holds up well...
