With the first test Orion crew module shipped to Lockheed Martin’s Denver facilities for testing, the United States is inching closer to a return to the moon.  Looking very much like the old Apollo capsules, the Orion will be launched by the powerful Ares I rocket. 

The second stage of the Ares I harkens back to the historic Apollo missions.  It’s engine, the J-2X,  is a simplified version of the J-2, the powerful engine that propelled the Saturn rockets on the original moon missions.

Crew transportation to the International Space Station is set for 2014, with  moon missions to being in 2020.

You can read all about the future return to the moon here on NASA’s own site, and comment on our discussion forum
