. . . Thus, the requirements of both profiles are the same in their outer regions, allowing a smooth transition between two radically different aerodynamic bodies.  [p.24] 

    The concept of a configuration such as the quasi-conical lower side we described was developed by Roger A, Anderson of the NASA Langley Research Center and published in December 1964 (Reference 8). This configuration was the result of an attempt to combine high aerodynamic drag and low structural weight. Both requirements were met in a brilliant fashion. The use of a concave profile to obtain a lightweight structure is a particularly elegant solution, because, with proper selection of this profile, any tensile stresses will occur in the surface structure which can therefore be made of thin sheet metal with a minimum of reinforcement.

    The truly exceptional advantages of this design become fully evident especially in a vehicle like the one we are discussing. For flights within the atmosphere the spaceship requires four helicopters. The concave profile is ideally suited for this arrangement. The helicopter units can be located at the maximum distance from each other, which is very important for good flight characteristics. And it even becomes possible to fold the rotor blades upward within the arch of the concave body. With this arrangement, the main body is located between the helicopters. This solution reduces to a minimum the overall height of the spacecraft, and the total center of gravity is located as low as possible to provide the desired in-flight stability and landing properties.

    At this time, no other spacecraft configuration is known which would reconcile the strongly divergent operational and structural requirements of this spacecraft. In this context we may think of the well-known shapes of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo capsules. It becomes immediately clear, however, that their configurations do not allow the inclusion of helicopters in the general layout.

    In view of the mission that the spaceships described by Ezekiel obviously had, and given the level of technology apparently available to those unknown engineers, the configuration they chose was undeniably the key to realization. This is the reason for my earlier statement that a concrete technical interpretation of Ezekiel's report depends on Anderson's publication.  [p.25] 

    Having thus described and explained the outward shape of the main body, we shall now turn our attention to its installations. . . .
