    Congratulations! Love it! I watched every mission in the 60’s & 70’s. Has a throw-back feel with today’s technology added in! But – I’m curious. I did assume that the future of the space industry would rely on the type of space craft that could land on a run-way similar to the shuttle. Not possible for deeper space missions to have developed that type of craft?

      Orion is back to the future. The US space program just recreated 40+ year old technology. Soyuz has done the same 100+ times.
