ORION LAUNCH TOMORROW

NASA’s new space pod Orion is scheduled to fly to orbit on an unmanned test flight tomorrow at 7:05 EST from Cape Canaveral, Florda, and you can watch the action live on NASA TV here. The space capsule is designed to take astronauts deep in to space and will pave the way for future manned missions to Mars. 4.5 hours after its initial launch it will be recovered from the Pacific Ocean, along with an odd array of cargo which includes a Star Trek action figure, a Marvel challenge coin, a dinosaur fossil, and a Muppet….which when combined seem suspiciously like a mad scientist’s idea of a good fun.
