Space race 2.0 - Lockheed Martin Mars lander with astronaut

Following the first mission,, building a permanent base in the orbit (a space station around Mars), a single-stage surface lander will be sent. The lander will be reusable and water-powered. It can hold up to 4 person. Astronauts could land on the Martian soil using the lander, and then return back to the base camp in the orbit. Each surface missions could last around two weeks, and could be safely aborted at any time.
