This thread is for the discussion of Aldrin Cycler Ships. First of all, an introduction to the topic- since most readers on this forum are undoubtedly unfamiliar with the concept, and the last time I wrote about it (many months ago) I received a lot of responses from people who clearly had no idea what they were talking about... Please read ALL of the following first, before commenting, I would really appreciate it. None of these are that long, and are only meant to provide a preliminary introduction to the topic: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_cycler https://buzzaldrin.com/space-vision/rocket_science/aldrin-mars-cycler/ https://space.stackexchange.com/questions/3880/what-uses-would-the-aldrin-cycler-have And, for more context I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading these articles: http://www.popularmechanics.com/space/moon-mars/a333/2076326/ https://www.damninteresting.com/the-martian-express/ Please read through at least the first three links, and the fourth and fifth ones if you can, and let me know your thoughts on the concept: advantages or disadvantages, synergies with other approaches/technologies, etc. Regards, Northstar
