Orion Spacecraft Launch - The next generation of space travel into deep space

The Human Space Exploration is about to change forever as the Orion Launch is about to happen were the limits in space exploration sets no boundaries to the far reaches of the universe when NASA's Orion Launch on December o4, 2014 in Cape Canaveral, FL USA rolled out to do a series of testings once in outer space to ready the humans in a much longer space flight just like in the movie Interstellar were the Endurance travel across the universe via wormhole located near Saturn, although in a much real situation the Orion is equipped with the latest technologies including the chutes, the onboard computer, and many others to the the recordings of every detail so that when it's time for humans to travel in space like going to Mars and beyond, every thing is all set. But things happen for the reason as the much anticipated Orion Launch day for NASA's Orion spacecraft will be delayed and will resume it's launching on Friday instead because of some problems encountered such as weather problems, including wind gusts, a stray boat in the launch zone and technical issues that causes the delay. But on Friday it will be mankind's another historic moment when the Orion Launch commence, hopefully, and will be carried by a powerful Delta IV-Heavy rocket launch vehicle and the launch is tentatively scheduled for 7:05AM ET Friday. The Orion spacecraft will be the newest space vehicle by NASA retiring it space shuttle and was built by the famous Lockheed Martin. The Delta IV-Heavy rocket launcher is the newest member of the Delta launch system family and is now considered to be the highest capacity rocket in the world which can launch 50,000 pounds of payload into orbit which has the Common Booster Core or CBC first stage which uses cryogenic propellants, Liquid Oxygen and Liquid Hydrogen, and two additional CBCs augment the first stage as strap-on liquid boosters to form a trip-body rocket. So going into deep space is now become more a reality as we send the uncrewed Orion spacecraft 3,600 miles from Earth on a two-orbit flight to test critical systems for the challenges of deep space missions and as humans look for Mars as it's target for the manned mission after the Lunar landing, it is safe to say that after the Orion spacecraft successful launch and series of test, we can now say that we are no go for launch across the red planet and beyond.
