Launch of the new Orion rocket



The Saturn V was, of course, far more impressive and beautiful.  But the Orion is pretty cool. When  I was looking at the drawings depicting the various stages of the spacecraft,  that Apollo-shaped capsule brought back some deep memories.  I was 10 years old when Apollo 11 launched.  


A page from the scrapbook I made during the flight of Apollo 11.

  1. Sorry to be pedantic, but Orion is the capsule. The rocket is a Delta IV Heavy.
