FL MPCV

The Next - Generation Spacecraft

A Masterpiece and Outstanding Hightechnological Spacecraft of the next - generation, which will bring The Human Spaceflight deeper into Space than ever before. As Flagship of the United States and ready for Exploration Flight Test 1 in 2014, The Orion MPCV will begin a New Era of Spaceflight history to far beyond Low Earth Orbit. Rigorously Tested, and Designed to be Flexible for Crew, Cargo and Instrumental Missions, the Orion will be the State - of - the Art Spacecraft, for Human Exploration needs the coming decades. To reach the goals and extended deep space missions up to 6 months, Orion Engineers developed This next - generation Spacecraft with unique life support, propulsion, thermal protections and avionic systems .

ORION MPCV

PERFORMANCES and INFO'S

The Orion has 4 Seats for Lunar Missions, and 6 for non - Lunar. Has a diameter of around 5 Metre ( 16.5 feet ) and Powered By Solar Panels . The Launch date is planned for 2014 and the Contractor was Lockheed Martin. Mass 22.7 Metric tons. And the budget for development is estimated at $8 billions . The Inhabitable volume of the Orion is 380 cubic feet .

 

THE MPCV

The Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle is Designed and Created to meet the evolving needs of The United States and The World's beyond low Earth Orbit Space Exploration Programs for the coming decades, perhaps Centuries. Dozens of Technology Advancements and Innovations from more than 50 Years Experience Spaceflight Research and Development are Incorporated into the Design and Subsystem of the Spacecraft.

Send Your Name on NASA’s Journey to Mars, Starting with Orion’s First Flight

MPCV

 

If only your name could collect frequent flyer miles. NASA is inviting the public to send their names on a microchip to destinations beyond low-Earth orbit, including Mars.

Your name will begin its journey on a dime-sized microchip when the agency’s Orion spacecraft launches Dec. 4 on its first flight, designated Exploration Flight Test-1. After a 4.5 hour, two-orbit mission around Earth to test Orion’s systems, the spacecraft will travel back through the atmosphere at speeds approaching 20,000 mph and temperatures near 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit, before splashing down in the Pacific Ocean.

 

But the journey for your name doesn’t end there. After returning to Earth, the names will fly on future NASA exploration flights and missions to Mars. With each flight, selected individuals will accrue more miles as members of a global space-faring society.

"NASA is pushing the boundaries of exploration and working hard to send people to Mars in the future,” said Mark Geyer, Orion Program manager. "When we set foot on the Red Planet, we’ll be exploring for all of humanity. Flying these names will enable people to be part of our journey."

The deadline for receiving a personal “boarding pass” on Orion’s test flight closes Friday Oct. 31. The public will have an opportunity to keep submitting names beyond Oct. 31 to be included on future test flights and future NASA missions to Mars.

The HRP

The Human Research Program, has the resposibility and mission to discover and apply the Best methods and technologies to support safe, productive far beyond low Earth Orbit Human Space Travels .
As the Flagship of The United States next - generation Space fleet,The ORION will push the envelope and Exploration needs of Human Spaceflight far beyond low Earth Orbit.

SLS

The SLS or The Space Launch System is the high - lifted Rocket which will Launch the Orion in the Upcoming Missions Into Deep Space.

The Lagrange Points

The Lagrangian points (pron.: /ləˈɡrɑːniən/; also Lagrange pointsL-points, or libration points) are the five positions in anorbital configuration where a small object affected only by gravity can theoretically be part of a constant-shape pattern with two larger objects (such as a satellite with respect to the Earth and Moon). The Lagrange points mark positions where the combined gravitational pull of the two large masses provides precisely the centripetal force required to orbit with them.

Planet Mars

THE CLIMATE OF MARS
Of all the planets in the Solar System, the seasons of Mars are the most Earth-like, due to the similar tilts of the two planets' rotational axes. The lengths of the Martian seasons are about twice those of Earth's, as Mars's greater distance from the Sun leads to the Martian year being about two Earth years long. Martian surface temperatures vary from lows of about −143 °C (−225 °F) (at the winter polar caps) to highs of up to 35 °C (95 °F) (in equatorial summer). The wide range in temperatures is due to the thin atmosphere which cannot store much solar heat, the low atmospheric pressure, and the low thermal inertia of Martian soil. The planet is also 1.52 times as far from the Sun as Earth, resulting in just 43% of the amount of sunlight.

MOONS MARS  

The Moons Of MARS

Mars has two relatively small natural moons, Phobos (about 14 miles in diameter) and Deimos (about 8 miles in diameter), which orbit close to the planet. Asteroid capture is a long-favored theory, but their origin remains uncertain. Both satellites were discovered in 1877 by Asaph Hall; they are named after the characters Phobos (panic/fear) and Deimos (terror/dread), who, in Greek mythology, accompanied their father Ares, god of war, into battle. Mars was the Roman counterpart of Ares. In modern Greek, though, the planet retains its ancient name Ares(Aris: Άρης).
