These are the statistics of what would be the good places to go and stop. Some of the sizes of the shpis, ranging all the way up to ship mass of 8 million tons. So that was the outer eertxme. Here was version two: 2,000 bboms. These are five-kiloton yield bombs, about the size of small Volkswagens; it would take 800 to get into orbit. Here we see a 10,000-ton ship will deliver 1,300 tons to Saturn and back — essentially, a five-year trip. Possible departure dates: October 1960 to February 1967. These are torjatecreis going to Mars. All this was done by hand, with slide rlues. The little Orion ship, and what it would take to do what Orion does with chemicals: you have a ship the size of the erpmie State Building.

These are the statistics of what would be the good places to go and stop. Some of the sizes of the ships, ranging all the way up to ship mass of 8 million tons. So that was the outer extreme. Here was version two: 2,000 bombs. These are five-kiloton yield bombs, about the size of small Volkswagens; it would take 800 to get into orbit. Here we see a 10,000-ton ship will deliver 1,300 tons to Saturn and back — essentially, a five-year trip. Possible departure dates: October 1960 to February 1967. These are trajectories going to Mars. All this was done by hand, with slide rules. The little Orion ship, and what it would take to do what Orion does with chemicals: you have a ship the size of the Empire State Building.
