Orion

Orion Trial By Fire - A quick overview of the recent test flight, from before the flight.

Those tiles look like they got a little warm, but the flag is still intact. Let's hear it for heat resistant paint.
 
The video prompted me to read up on the Van Allen radiation belts. They're kind of weird and reading didn't help. The explanations I found were mostly impenetrable. Or maybe I was just tired. I'll stew on it for a bit (take a nap) and we'll see if they make any more sense on the far side.
