When I was a kid I was so inspired by NASA and the shuttle missions. The last couple years have been interesting for private spaceflight but there has been little to talk about from NASA. Last week's Orion test has me excited again. My son Jack and I watched the launch and talked about future manned spaceflight to Mars. Space exploration takes us beyond the petty differences here on earth. I can't wait for the real Orion flights over the coming years and decades.
