The bottom line is this. The new American administration won't tolerate the half truths and indiscretions from the space agency, nor the intelligence departments, as they were previously.
I forecast lots of people looking for new jobs.
As we get further away from Earth, we’ll pass through the Vann Allan Belts, an area of dangerous radiation. Radiation like this can harm the guidance systems, onboard computers, or other electronics on Orion. Naturally, we have to pass through this danger zone twice, once up and once back. But Orion has protection, shielding will be put to the test as the vehicle cuts through the waves of radiation. Sensors aboard will record radiation levels for scientists to study. We must solve these challenges before we send people through this region of Space.

Let's be honest. My people didn't give your people permission to leave this plane. And you guys won't have permission for a looooong time until your agencies are honest with Earth's residents and have good intentions to begin with. We see and know all.
Them's fighting words . . .
Humanity does not need permission as far as I understand the current situation esotericly.
So, two questions;
Who or what is humanity's jailer?
By what right do they think they can decide humanity's future?

All of the clips show recent comments. Could it be that because we used the Saturn V to go to the moon and we don't currently have that right now?
Mostly it is people saying we don't CURRENTLY have the capability to go past low earth orbit.
yea that's what I was thinking too, but the star question has me more confused..
the delta IV payload is NOTHING compared to the Saturn Vs...
