NASA's Orion Spaceship: To the Moon, Mars and Beyond!

 America’s new spaceship is going to be unveiled at Kennedy Space Center Monday morning. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who crafted the blue-print for NASA’s continued deep-space exploration, will be on hand.
The path forward will feature the new Orion spacecraft, which was trucked this week from New Orleans to Florida’s east coast, where it arrived, according to NASA. Orion is a four-person craft designed to go into space atop a new monster rocket that will be more powerful than any booster ever built.
It will be capable of carrying astronauts deeper into space than they’ve ever been. The plan is for NASA to lead us to Mars.”
On Monday, the spacecraft will be unveiled for the media at a news conference at 10 a.m. at KSC’s Operations and Checkout facility.
