Bypassing what the first manned landers looked like, In a dream state I saw delta
Spaceship presumably built on Mars. It took off and landed vertical with the fuselage
Horizontal then fired its rear rockets to orbit. Landed the same way without runway.
This gave it the capacity to pick up from orbit cargo from earth and bring it down to
A big base on the Mars surface. It is to be noted the asteroid Ceres easy access from
Mars contains as ice the equivalent water volume found in all of the earth’s oceans.
Such a spaceship could easily access cargo from Mars and bring back propellant
Mass water. I think the rocket main thruster was nuclear fission. It had a plug nose
Shape flanked on both sides with plasma rockets.
