I figured it out, this is Sudan and Egypt’s east coast on the Red Sea. The river is the Nile.

So We Have Orion, What Now?


Yep, today NASA shot a rocket and orbited the earth twice, then dropped a human capable lander into the Ocean. Good job, no major problems at all. We did the same thing back in the 1960’s, so what now?

Going to the Moon or Mars is now within reach, but why? They are both dead worlds. Mars (no matter what terraforming we do) will never be able to sustain life, because it has no magnetic field to shield it from the radiation that has stripped away it’s atmosphere. The only option I see with Mars is to deorbit a few dwarf planets (Ceres and Vesta) and crash them into Mars. It might kickstart the planet so the core produces a magnetic field, like Earth does. That would also add enough water to the planet to maybe make it habitable.

The moons of Jupiter would be great targets for a deep space mission, but humans probably couldn’t survive the round trip, especially in a craft like Orion. The plan to capture an asteroid and put it in orbit around the Moon might be a good use for Orion, to go visit and bring back samples. Other countries are now doing the same with robots.

So, I just have to wonder, what now? Probably back to the Moon.
