orion scehamtic -- Project Orion: NASA's Next Spaceship Takes Shape

I'm sorry, but that's an Apollo Command Module. The Orion of the 21st Century is a sleek shuttle rising gracefully to an catherine wheel space station as in 2001, not a throwback to the 1960s. It makes one feel that NASA ought to just give up and ask Branson and Burt Rutan to take over.

And no first flight til 2015, and no moon til 2020.
