I have made it clear in many posts that I do not think that nuclear power is appropriate for massive generation of commercial electricity.
Last week I blogged about the Space Launch System (SLS) heavy lifter program that NASA is working on. One of the missions of the SLS will be to launch the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (Orion MPCV) into Earth orbit and beyond. The Orion is intended to carry up to six astronauts on missions to the International Space Station (ISS) and interplanetary exploration.
I have been blogging recently about commercial space companies and foreign launch services. Today I am going to focus on recent and current major projects of NASA in the United States.
The European Aeronautic Defence and Space company was formed in 2000 by the merger of Aérospatiale-Matra, DaimlerChrysler Aerospace AG (DASA), and Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA (CASA). In 2014, the company name was changed to Airbus Group.
