More Saturn Orion

Scott Lowther is continuing work on his book on the Orion nuclear pulse rocket(s).  Today he gave a glimpse of the last “official” Orion designs.  The Philco Mars landers might have been launched by a modified Saturn 1C.  Once suborbital, the nuclear pulse engine would take the landers into Mars bound trajectory.  Fascinating stuff!
