"The outfitting operations at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) will take 17 months" - http://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2012/08/nasas-eft-1-orion-17-months-outfitting-at-ksc/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Craigboy (talkcontribs) 2012-08-14T08:54:36

T-Minus-two MONTHS and counting[edit]

AS this is October 2nd and the thing is supposed to launch in mid-December, doesn't anyone think that this article should be given a good thorough revision?Ericl (talk) 14:26, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Reentry conditions[edit]

'Flight' section says "or 64% of the energy dissipated upon reentry from a moon mission" but this does not seem to be supported by either source. One source says the 4000F reentry temperature is 80% of that from a lunar mission. (Not clear that the 80% is of the Kelvin temp) - Looks like the 64% energy is OR based possible on squaring 80% - ignoring larger mass of Orion. I have moved the refs to before the 64%. It would be great to compare rentry velocities, and capsule kinetic+potential energy of Orion EFT1 and Apollo lunar missions. - 23:46, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
