I have to tell you that my “outsider” status is in serious jeopardy. I’m going to meetings, hobnobbing with engineers and researchers, and basically becoming an Orion expert.
Chris actually slipped up the other day and asked me a direct question about NASA’s return to the Moon. The times, they are a changing.
So, here are a few select shots from my daily Orion briefing that I thought you might enjoy.
(Viewer note: I find these pictures even MORE interesting if you hum the theme from the “The Right Stuff” while viewing)
