FISO: Combined SEP-Chemical for manned Mars missions

The latest presentation to the Future In-Space Operations (FISO) study group is now posted in the FISO Working Group Presentations Archive. Both slides (pdf) and audio (mp3) are available for the talk, Combined SEP-Chemical for Piloted Mars Missions, Steve Oleson , NASA GRC – March 6, 2013.

Unfortunately, all the plans he discusses rely on the SLS vehicle, which will cost billions to fly and so there will be no funding left for projects like this.
