Is anyone else watching the Orion test?
The Orion spacecraft built to take astronauts beyond the earth-moon system for the first time is being tested. It's currently on approach to the test apogee and everything is looking good so far.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Currently watching it. Like everyone else we lost our feed at launch. It's like watching a real life version of Kerbal Space Program.

we watched the launch this morning, but then had to get the kids out the door school, hoping to tune in for splashdown.

Heh, yeah. Especially with the CGI rendering and all the talk about reaction control systems Smile

I'm not convinced it isn't someone playing Kerbal during the quiet times...
