The capsule emerged parachutes and hit the water at 270 miles west of Baja California. Its final descent was technically aided by eight parachutes deployed in sequence. It was considered a “bull’s eye” landing or, in other words, “the most perfect flight you could ever imagine.” The good result at this test is a solid base to sustain the future American spatial program including  a possible human mission targeting Mars no sooner than 2021. Without doubts, Orion launches new era for space exploration. With three first-stage booster strapped together, each producing 663,000 pounds of thrust at sea level, the Delta IV Heavy is the most powerful rocket fling today. Another unmanned test flight is scheduled in 2018. The program will require budget increases which could not be anticipated as possible at the necessary level.
