The Orion Spacecraft and SLS Projects

journey_to_marsOne of the main projects for NASA is the Orion Spacecraft. The Orion Spacecraft is the next human carrying shuttle being built with the capability of taking humans to mars and beyond. Durability is a key factor for NASA so the Orion is being designed to meet NASA’s needs for decades of missions. Another large project being worked on is the Space Launch System known as the SLS. The SLS will be the rocket to launch the Orion into space, in fact, they had a press meeting for the SLS last friday at the Marshall Space Flight Center.
