From Apollo to Orion

Orion CEV
The Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) in lunar orbit. has scooped the new moniker for the next NASA exploration initiative. The project will be called Orion.

30 years ago, Saturn rockets were launching Apollo capsules to the Moon. Within the next ten years, we will see their 21st century counterparts do the same thing all over again; only this time, Ares rockets will be launching Orion capsules.
