Orion: Another Triumph of Red, White & Blue American Socialism


Sorry, government-haters, but yesterday was a big day for NASA, the government’s space-exploration department, which successfully launched and recovered its new Orion spacecraft. According to NASA, the craft was sent into a brief orbit “atop a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket Dec. 5 at 7:05 a.m. EST from Space Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Orion’s Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1), is the first flight test for NASA’s new deep space capsule and is a critical step on NASA’s journey to Mars.”
