Orion: I’m on Board – Nichelle Nichols

Nichelle Nichols, Lt. Uhura on Star Trek in the late 1960s, promotes NASA's newest spacecraft, Orion. As mentioned in the clip, she last did this for NASA decades ago when the organization was seeking astronauts for their space shuttle during its final stages of development. It is wonderful to see her spanning the decades of spaceflight like this.
