Following a successful test flight and splashdown of NASA’s Orion space capsule, what’s next for this promising spacecraft? It’s been forty years since humans have gone beyond low Earth orbit, and now the Orion is almost ready to take us back – possibly as far as Mars! Jonathan takes us on an inside look into the incredible technology powering the vehicle that will launch us into our next phase of space exploration.
Are you as inspired by the Orion project as us, or do you think there’s another method we should explore for space? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
