I think the"Recruiter"in the vid was refering to the future.As in later in one's career if you join.The guy in vid didn't look like a young 20 something.

The shield crest background is a delta configuration with a sawtooth pattern. Not unlike depictions of the nonexistent TR-3..

I know someone whose grandfather worked on Orion. Has a pretty cool belt buckle from one of the test shots.

I went to Kenedy space center a number of years ago and they had several mock up sections of the ISS there, for training and orientation.

They were about to launch the Italian section so that shows you how long ago this was.

But the image could be of an astronaut walking around in one of these mocked up modules?

Is Orion that nuke propelled (as in exploding small nukes behind it to propell it) project they were working on decades ago?

Can't put my finger on it, but i'm half sure i heard they were going to look into that idea again..could be wrong though.

Yeah. It suddenly, supposedly, developed some issues and was canceled.

Is it just me or does the Guy at 0:17 look like his head has been superimposed into that space suit..?

In reference to Zaph's Apollo quarry, does anyone else notice the Orion constellation here:



Hmmm, I wonder what that means.

D'oh!

How did I not see that first, rather than the bird?

Must admit, they're [censored] good at what they do, especially since this much thought goes into patches alone.

Orion indeed is the nuclear propelled craft.

Not just ANY nuclear propelled craft but the most bad ass awesome "makes everything else obsolete until we develop warp drive" nuclear propelled craft

Officially, it was canceled before getting to the build stage.

Well, there's atmospheric fallout if you start it low, and starting it out from orbit looks like a EMP attack.

What's the long term efficiency/reliability of something like this vs a naval power plant powering an ion drive?

Not to my knowledge


But it should have.

Only reason it was canned was cause of "politics"

A ship that uses nukes to move is not "PC"

Higher acceleration, higher to speed being two advantages to it, along with the fact that at the time it was being developed there was no such animal as an ion drive that was ready for something like this. It was still doing suborbital testing.
