Orion, the space capsule of the future

A test model of the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle, NASA's next-generation space capsule, is rolled out at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave Desert in October 2008. The Orion vehicle looks strikingly similar to the Apollo space capsule, but it is larger and will carry six astronauts instead of three. NASA is aiming to send Americans to the moon aboard Orion by 2020.
