M.A.V. Mars Ascent Vehicle for “The First”

I was tasked with designing the Mars Ascent Vehicle for returning astronauts to the orbital M.T.V. (Mars Transit Vehicle). The capsule at the top is the actual return vehicle and seats 5. In this concept, the astronauts are retrieving life support from the storage unit on the side of the ship. Supplies are lowered to ground level via motorized lift. .
