NASA animation shows Orion’s first launch

This four minute animation created by NASA, shows every step from the launch of Orion, to its orbits of the Earth, before it returns back down to the surface. This upcoming event on the 4th of December, is meant to be the most important development in US based human space flight since the end of the space shuttle program back in 2011.

The long term goal of NASA is to send humans to Mars by the 2030's and Orion is an important step in that direction. Here is the video below.
