The Real Thing
The "Orion" Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) is a planned beyond low-earth orbit manned spacecraft that is being built by Lockheed Martin for NASA based on designs and tests already completed as part of the now-cancelled Constellation program, development for which began in 2005 as the Crew Exploration Vehicle. The MPCV was announced by NASA on 24 May 2011. The MPCV's debut unmanned multi-hour test flight, known as Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1), is scheduled for a launch aboard a Delta IV Heavy rocket in 2014. The first manned mission is expected to take place after 2020. Each Orion spacecraft is projected to carry a crew of four astronauts. The spacecraft was originally designed to be launched by the Ares I launch vehicle.[ On 11 October 2010, with the cancellation of the Constellation Program, the Ares program ended and development of the original Orion vehicle was retooled into the MPCV, planned to be launched on top of an alternative, cheaper[not verified in body] Space Launch System. The Obama Administration's proposed cancellation of the Constellation program began in February 2010 and was signed into law 11 October. The bill is basically a retooling of the Constellation Program, moving the objective away from a moon base and more towards a Near-Earth object (NEO) mission and an eventual Mars landing. - Wikipedia

Artistic Interpretation of Orion in Space
Orion é uma nave espacial a ser desenvolvida pela NASA. Segundo planos anteriores, ela seria capaz de transportar uma tripulação entre quatro e seis astronautas, e seria lançada pela foguete espacial Ares I. Tanto a Orion quanto a Ares I faziam parte do Programa Constellation, que planejava enviar exploradores humanos novamente para a Lua, e posteriormente para Marte e outros destinos no sistema solar. Em 31 de agosto de 2006 a NASA premiou a Lockheed Martin com o contrato para o projeto, desenvolvimento e construção da Orion. Contudo, em 1° de fevereiro de 2010, a administração Obama apresentou a proposta de orçamento para o ano de 2011, no qual desiste do programa Constellation. Cancelando os fundos para este programa e defendendo a participação da iniciativa privada na criação de naves espaciais para o transporte de astronautas para a órbita terrestre baixa . A Orion seria lançada do mesmo complexo de lançamento no Centro Espacial Kennedy que lança atualmente os ônibus espaciais. A NASA planejava usar a nova cápsula a partir de 2014 ou no início de 2015, muito tempo depois da aposentadoria dos três ônibus espaciais em 2011.
De acordo com os novos planos, o primeiro voo de teste, chamado de Exploration Flight Test 1, será em 2014. - Wikipedia
