Waiting Orion deep Space Mission We Celebrate Apollo Missions

During last day everybody is talking about Orion, i.e. the new generation NASA’s spacecraft. Orion is built to take humans farther than they’ve ever gone before (see infographic here). Orion will serve as the exploration vehicle that will carry the crew to space, provide emergency abort capability, sustain the crew during the space travel, and provide safe re-entry from deep space return velocities.

On December 5, 2014, Orion launched atop a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Space Launch Complex Flight Test on the Orion Flight Test: a two-orbit, four-hour flight that tested many of the systems most critical to safety.

The Orion Flight Test evaluated launch and high speed re-entry systems such as avionics, attitude control, parachutes and the heat shield.

In the future, Orion will launch on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System. More powerful than any rocket ever built, SLS will be capable of sending humans to deep space destinations such as an asteroid and eventually Mars. Exploration Mission-1 will be the first mission to integrate Orion and the Space Launch System.

But in the meantime we want to celebrate another series of spacecraft capable to bring Humanity over the moon. The Apollo spacecraft whose symbol is the famous picture of Buzz Aldrin over the Moon soil. We hope to see soon another Astronaut over the Martian soil.
