APOLLO CAPABLE OF REACHING MARS AND VENUS

Excerpt...

1.6 CAPABILITIES DEVELOPED

The development of large boosters, rendezvous techniques and maneuverable Space vehicles, all required for the Lunar Expedition, will also provide a capability for many new and advanced space achievements. For example, the Space Launching System which will boost 130,000 pounds to escape velocity will boost approximately 350,000 pounds into a 300 nm orbit, or will launch a manned vehicle on a pass around either Mars or Venus.

h. The Flans Office will be responsible for examining other potential uses of equipment developed for the Lunex Program. For example, - the salme equipment could be used for sending men around Mars and Venus, or perhaps effecting a landing on Phobos. Considerable planning also needs to be done regarding the exploratory phase of the Lunar Expedition.
