Zombie astronauts aside:



I wanted to share these drawings I found, just in case anyone here needs a little added inspiration in making cool SF vehicles:

Air intakes? On Mars?

That spot of pedantry (sorry, I get like this with my SF sometimes) aside, they are quite interesting.

A swift googling suggests the potential for jet engines burning magnesium powder directly in Mars' 95% CO2 atmosphere

Plus I think those ideas for nuclear powered jet engines using a reactor to heat the air instead of fuel combustion would still work on Mars
