Wrong.  That was only the length.  HEXAGON was only 10ft wise.  The diameter of the payload bay was sized fire station modules and high energy upper stage, as stated many times before.

Apologies for forgetting the Book of Jim.  ::)

But, who would design a 6:1 aspect ratio bay? I think the 60 had a lot to do with the 15.

not really, they were even looking at 12'
