How Design Reuse Will Take Us to Mars: Inside Orion and Space Launch System

When the United States retired its space shuttle program in 2011, it marked the end of a 30-year commitment to low earth orbital space travel. Since 1981, space shuttles had flown missions to launch satellites, conduct low-gravity experiments, and build the international space station, all 200 miles or so above the earth.  Now, NASA said, […]
