A presentation in graphical form of the impulsive velocity increments required for round trips to Mars, starting from a 100-n-mi circular orbit around the Earth to the same orbit around Mars. Examples are given to show how the required velocity increments change for various tradeoffs between trip times on each leg of the journey and stay time in the orbit around Mars.
