??  Ah, when you start by having to solar panel Mercury in order to power the
thing and add in such huge sails, and arnt sure you have brakes; I begin to
doubt.  ;(

Great!  I'll even throw in a custom cool header for your MARS system.

Sure, but I think different 'Projects'  Explorer, MARS, Argosy, etc  (I think
we need to work up an anti matter one). should have destinctive headers.
 Also Star Ship Design Project.  Maybe I'll tinker with my3d graphic program.
 Need to get serious about job hunting thou.  I want to be out of here by
late summer.

Glad you liked it (and that I don't need to rough out MARS by myself!)
