The waiting is over, for us fans of space and for other connoisseurs, as well. Nasa’s long-promised announcement about Orion Spacecraft development and activity has been stated.
Nasa proudly, and finally, announced that their top spacecraft, known as Orion, it’s at a final status. They teased us many years with their progress or any other details, and we grew more and more impatiently. But now, the fact that we can have a glimpse of what would be the actual spacecraft, well, it gives us hope. And of course, it’s what we all expected, some futuristic, everywhere scattered design!
Once with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing, everybody becomes more and more nervous, their curiosity filling the suspense. Even brands like Oreo, got crazier this time of the year and released moon-themed, so delicious, Oreos! But to get things straight, there were also, meetings, commemorations and other stuff media related, which created a big buzz!
Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center created the greatest atmosphere, bringing closer significant people like, Vice President Mike Pence, Jim Bridenstine and the best of them all, the incredible Buzz Aldrin. They all announced that the Orion Spacecraft is ready to get in the outer space business, and unfortunately, NASA won’t make another trip to the moon and put another flag in there. Well, they want to make it better and safer this time, meaning they need to develop their missions in such a way that they will be returning!
Looking closer at Orion, we could see how much effort was needed in order to create it. Many parts and many hours of assembly, and even more hours to take tests for its capsule, assuring that it’ll be properly for Orion. A mission like walking on the moon in just five years seems suddenly very appropriate and possible for us, but only assuming that Orion will pass the tests.
