Passengers/cargo in two pods and hydrogen tank in main body?

Without a doubt. A nice variation on the concept, as all the projects previously seen, either from either Lockheed or Boeing, use the pods for fuel, not the main fuselage.

There was a discussion a few years back about a safety concept where the passengers were situated in an pod with a parachute inside the main body of the aircraft. It would be easier to implement that idea in this concept. Plus ejection seats for the crew.

As a matter of interest; what changes need to be made to the engines & fuel systems to be able to run hydrogen? (Besides the obvious tankage requirements)
