This is the mate to the odd numbered cylinders model for a Pneumatic Tower to unload supplies and people at Mars.
It is anticipated that SpaceX rockets will land in a vertical configuration on Mars, and that the exit portal will be high above the surface of Mars. The Pneumatic Tower is a concept that might be able to lift cargo up to and to lower cargo from the portal of a landed vehicle. The tower would be mounted on a mobile platform, able to maneuver to the landing site, where-ever the ship lands. Some restrictions may apply. This project originated on the NewMars.com forum, in a topic about inflatable towers.
