SSTO Mega-Booster with Mars Mission Payload
Production Run: 2010-2014
About the Design
The Nexus was spaceflight visionary Krafft Ehricke's concept for a Single Stage to Orbit (SSTO) booster capable of lifting 900 tonnes into orbit. Standing as tall as the Washington Monument, the fully recoverable booster system would have dwarfed anything in either the American or Soviet arsenals, including the Soviet N-1 and the American Saturn V.
Although CAD-designer Scott Lowther laid out both the Mars Mission and Project Orion payloads (see below), current plans call for this kit to include the Mars Mission payload only.
