The Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle

NASA is building a new space exploration vehicle that will replace the shuttle. This new aircraft is called Orion. Orion is part of the Constellation Program to send humans back to the moon and beyond. We were able to see the mockup this weekend and visit with some of the engineers. Orion had a successful flight test of the launch abort system in May 2010. Two video links are added for your viewing.
