What are the Orion astronauts doing these days?

NASA sounds like they are cutting corners. You can get very political on why this is happening, but not on this site, even when pertaining to future Space missions. Which we all here like. Not much is coming out of Space X either.

They finally will launch soon, but I do not think they were "poor" in any meaning. I mean, they are doing the job of their lives, getting money for it and in general enjoy their time. I wish everyone have a passion and job at the same time as what these people have. :D
