All-solid Nova design

The Unwanted Blog is the ideal place to find new and strange rockets, and this post is no exception. The proposed, but never built, project is for a Nova class launch vehicle that is made of large, seemingly monolithic solid motor units in every stage. Like a giant project farside rocket scaled up! (Hmm how about launching this as a rockoon off of a 1,000,000,000 cf solar-thermal balloon?)

For more information, there is a PDF article. (It may take a while to load on your computer depending on Internet conditions.)
