Interesting Case for Mars Document

This dates back to '96, however, it has some great plans for a biconic spacecraft, much like the one NASA is considering now:

And while were on the subject of biconics, here is a nice image from astronautix of the ESA ACRV:

Looks similar to the one NASA is considering. We've been comparing our new biconic to Kliper, this one looks even closer to NASA's new design.

NASA is considering all types to be honest. Be prepared for a surprise.
