Dawn of Orion

Go Back

In December 2014, the Planetary Society headed to Florida for the first test launch of the Orion spacecraft. There were already thousands of cameras pointing at the rocket, so we decided to point ours to the people.

This short documentary brings you to the Kennedy Space Center and shows you what it feels like to experience a launch this big.

mars is nice and all, but why not go to the moon first? the last time we went there our on-board computers were less powerful than the iphone, so it should be a walk in the park this time around, right?
