Into the future with Orion

On December 05, 2014, the Orion capsule successfully completed its flight test having spent 4.5 hours on the Earth’s orbit and then splashing into the Pacific Ocean, 600 miles southwest from San Diego. It is designed to take humans into outer space and preferably Mars.

NASA’s plan is to launch the Orion on Space Launch System (SLS), the most powerful rocket ever built for the Exploration Mission.

This reminds me of Arthur C. Clarke’s work’s and what he envisaged more than 40 years might not be that far away after all. I mean it is one thing to be a reader of science fiction and space travel but to actually DO it is a different story and a truly breathtaking one.
