Design of The Orion
There is a really complex design to the Orion shuttle. Trust me, it is much more than just screws, bolts and coils. The Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Industry and crew team, needs to know what kind of energy it will run on, what the efficiency of speed is, and the kind of avionics it will use. NASA ("National Aeronautics Space Administration") has come up with another space shuttle ready to take off in 2014, but the question that might come up in your mind as soon as you read this is " How it will stay up on space, what features does it have, and what kind of energy it will run on?"
The Orion will have many special features and trust me they're awesome. One of the features for the Orion shuttle is the cockpit. The pilot will drive and steer the Orion shuttle from the cockpit. One of the few features that have easily surpassed any of the previous shuttles is the technology and the computers it will have in it. They will even have a computer inside of it. There will be a entry hatch in the side of the Orion, and there will be a docking tunnel for the ISS (International Space Station), and other lunar vehicles. For safety, there will be foldable metal seats with sturdy webbing in case there are no parachutes and they are about to crash. NASA is working on the fuel of the Orion. They want to make it more energy efficient by making it solar powered.
