Mars Shuttlecraft Departing



A reusable Shuttlecraft departs an orbiting station over Mars, ferrying crew down to the surface.
The Mars surface was derived from Mars Orbiting Laser Altimeter data, which was converted to a grayscale map and used to deform a plane. The Shuttle itself is based on a biconic aerobody, one of the many shapes being considered for Mars entry vehicles. The station modules are based on the Boeing Destiny module of the International Space Station.
Thanks for taking a look.
