Bring it on...... ORION. seems old is better?


Recommended Posts

They haven't used Orion for a spacecraft before. They did have "Project Orion" in the 1960s - which was their nuclear rocket but that wasn't a spaceship as such.

It's in keeping with calling their manned spacecraft (Shuttle excepted) after characters from Greco-Roman mythology - Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Orion etc.

And of course, Orion has been used many times for aircraft.

I even owned a Ford Orion car once.

Not forgetting to mention the 2001 version....
