Photo Comment

This is the nose section of the eighth Mars which was never finished, because the war ended. It sat out in the elements for 62 years until Coulson took over the company in 2007 from the previous consortium. I remember seeing it overgrown in the bush behind the base. It has been nicely restored and at the time was part of their visitor center.
