You're barking up the wrong tree. I never said anything was "incredible ". I asked you, if going to Mars wasn't "particularly incredible" (just in case your recollection isn't on par with your glittering intelligence, you mentioned the phrase "particularly incredible", not me). I answered your query about fact #5. You, on the hand, provided no substance or contributions to the thread - just petty, unsuccessfully attempts at putting words in my mouth (e.g. I relayed the fact it (capsule) will travel to Mars and you began to twist my words by asking about a "design" traveling to a place humans have never been [that qualifies as incredible] because it's obvious [remind me where it has been stated/tested/illustrated that a human landing on Mars is obvious; moreover, not to be confused as an incredible feat - notice I never mentioned the words "design" or "incredible" in my first post]).

Oh goody, you get to walk back your ignorance and possibly add some useful contribution(s) to the thread. I don't expect it, but hope springs eternal and ignorance can be remedied.

Care to summarise that thread and point out how it's relevant to this thread at all? I don't want to read walls of text just because you linked to it here.

I wonder how 4 people are going to sit still for 9 months..

It is still a very small space to just "hang out" in for that long..

The Orion is just going to be used for Earth lift off and landing.
The majority of the trip it will be dead weight.
The living/working area will be a different unit.

NASA has become nothing more than a embarrassment to us. All they ever talk about is their big plans to put man on mars,land a submarine on Europa, go back to the moon,mine asteroids, yadda, yadda, yadda. but we can't even launch our men to the space station! We have to buy $40,000,000 rocket motors from Russia!
I have also seen first hand deceit from NASA,faking space walks,etc,etc. I don't have time now but tomorrow i'll post a video of astronauts working on the Hubble, and one of the astronauts has a thumb less space glove on.His bare thumb exposed in space until Houston informs him that hey, we can see your bare thumb.


I can't wait to see this video. Finally..the proof of what you guys have been saying all alone. That nasa is lying to a us! !

I would t hold my breath though...something tells me you are full of hot air and won't be back to post said video.

As for nasa being an embarrassment..they are only using Russian rockets and only temporarily . The Russians have not launched a probe to Pluto or unlocked the secrets of the Saturn system with the INCREDIBLE 10 year Cassini mission or taken gi res images of Ceres.

Nasa bashing is so tiring. All talk and no substance. Like little kids acting big in the playground.

I couldn't do it....

The good news is that you wouldn't have to worry about repeating it on the trip home!

I may be mistaken... but i thought that Freeman Dyson conceived the idea for Orion....

rumor has it that it went black.

This is the shortest video I could find on the original Nuclear powered Orion. There are other videos about the concept and testing that went on during the development. This is just an animation of what they thought the finished ship would look like. It actually looks like something from 2001 the movie. youtu.be...
