Spaceflight Now 2006/11/17<br /><br />The system requirements review is one in a series of reviews that will occur before NASA and its contractors build the Orion capsule, the Ares launch vehicles, and establish ground and mission operations. The review guidelines narrow the scope and add detail to the system design. <br /><br />Each Constellation project also is preparing for a narrower, project-level systems review, according to the following schedule:<br /><br /> * Orion crew exploration vehicle, February 2007<br /> * Ground operations (launch support), February 2007<br /> * Mission operations (mission support), March 2007<br /> * Extravehicular activity (space suits), March 2007

AFAIK, this is the furthest weve gotten on the way to the moon since Apollo. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><strong>My borrowed quote for the time being:</strong></p><p><em>There are three kinds of people in life.

Yep, NASA are really serious this time. A lot of people are disappointed that the spacecraft don't look very futuristic, but that's exactly what can make this work.<br /><br />Besides, this time the Space Shuttle is about to retire - so NASA will need to create new vehicles or quit manned spaceflight.<br /><br />Let's just hope the politicians won't destroy it. But I don't think they will. I believe that NASA actually is on the way back to the moon this time. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#ff9900">----------------------------------</font></p><p><font color="#ff9900">My minds have many opinions</font></p> </div>

Speak for yourself.<br /><br />I think that the Saturn V and Apollo spacecraft look<br />more "futuristic" than the space shuttle...<br /><br />It don't have to have wings to look like a spacecraft.

IMO spaceplanes are as close as a machine can get to being noncommittal <img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

Oh boy. Four more SR's. Four more sets of trades and selections opted for. Four more sets of "Big Problems" exposes based on "informed sources" at NASAWatch. Four more sets of "Why does NASA hate..." threads.

Well, Mission support and EVA SRR's would have to be done anyway, regardless of the chosen vehicle. That leaves only two "Big Problems" exposes until the program is cancelled because of percieved or actual "Big Problems".
