Orion takes home the gold!

ORION is launched, orbits, and completely kicks butt! Today the ORION spacecraft (mentioned in a previous post of mine Shuttles of Future Past) took off, did a few laps around our pale blue dot, and hit the water, putting the U.S. back on the space-map.

Many of the details are discussed in the following video, but there is no doubt tons of data to sift through. The next step, as I understand it, is a manned repeat of this event, followed by ORION’s use in the depths of space!
