Absolutely stunning picture of Orion. I personally believe that the Universe is abundant with life and some probably inhabit planets through out the Orion constellation. As far as Orion being Heaven, we will have to wait and see, when its our time to go.
There aren't "planets in the Orion constellation", because the constellation only looks like something from our point of view, and because our eyes tend to look for patterns.
The various stars that we see as a "constellation" are hundreds of light years apart. The nearest star is about 240 light years away, the farthest is 1360 light years away. They are nowhere near each other. There is no place "Orion" you can go to.
Each individual star in the constellation MAY have planets. But there are no planets that are "in Orion", or in any constellation for that matter.
