NASA'S Orion Spacecraft Is Finished

NASA had a bad week. First it was forced to publicly deny the ridiculous rumour that the Earth was about to endure six days of total night. Then it had to watch as one of its major private space partners' rockets exploded shortly after takeoff.

Well now it's had some good news: the Orion spacecraft, which one day will take manned astronauts to space, the Moon and even Mars, is finished!
