Tue03 Google Sketchup for Red Dragon Mission
The ISRU team has been talking with Ames and the +SpaceX team about collaboration for a 2018 Mission to Mars and I started trying to model the Dragon capsule in +Google Sketchup. Now I can start to notionally layout our Atmo processing (CO2 Freezer, Sabatier, Condensor, Electrolyzer) and maybe Ames Life Detection Drill. We are still just brainstorming but I find it helps to at least have an idea of roughly the potential layout and volume allocations.
I had to base it off of the SpaceX datasheet for dimensions.
