+ - Orion Moonship Looking Less Like Apollo

Submitted by

simonbp writes "NASA's Orion Spacecraft, designed to return the United States to the Moon, has undergone some massive changes recently. The design, which originally looked like a scaled-up version of Apollo, has evolved considerably under the prime contractor, Lockheed Martin. Changes include an encapsulated service module, circular solar panels, a rearranged reaction-control system, a larger escape rocket system, and deadbeat airbags for landing, rather than Russian-style retrorockets."

The economy depends about as much on economists as the weather does on weather forecasters. -- Jean-Paul Kauffmann
