John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dan Adamo to discuss technical issues, flight dynamics, and approaches for landing a Red Dragon on the surface of Mars in 2018. Dan discussed landing profiles, relevant studies done with the space shuttle, Super Draco Thrusters, launch windows for Mars and Martian landing site selection options. I'm quite sure you will find this Hotel Mars discussion to be most interesting and informative.
