Colour image of Phobos. Although there isn't a huge amount of colour! Plus the image is more "colourful" than you would see if you were actually there as it includes wavelengths that are normally invisible to the human eye. This Google Plus post also has a link to a 3D image should you have a pair of red/blue glasses handy
I am wanting to present to NASA and others a mission architecture for a combined Phobos-Deimos (PhD) mission using Falcon Heavy launches, Dragon capsule(s), maybe BEAM habitat, maybe a Centaur upper stage, and maybe solar electric propulsion. The mission could preposition a hab and supplies at Phobos, use aerobraking, and leaving all but a capsule in a highly elliptical Mars orbit (HEMO) in order to minimize the propellant needed. Transfer between Phobos and Deimos could be done via Dragon capsule or if not sufficiently capable then just the crew with a propulsion pack. This project could be part of the work of a Space Development Group which develops a set of mission architectures for the low-cost development of the inner solar system. Check out LunarCOTS.com. Thx.
