Orion Flight Test

Here is a wonderful summation of the successful Orion capsule test flight from Friday, December 5, 2014. It is a beautiful thing to see. Glad to see the return of the capsule and big aspirations beyond low Earth orbit. It was fascinating to hear NASA's director discuss the possibility of allowing other nations to cooperate with us, with the US providing the Orion capsule and another nation providing the lander to return to the Moon. Not a bad idea, along with the trip to the asteroid and eventually on to Mars.
