With NASA ’s Orion Abort-System Test, Americans Just Took a Small (and Very Big) Step Closer to the Moon
It was a modest little rocket scheduled to make a modest little flight, and yet an awful lot of people showed up at Cape Canaveral before dawn this morning to watch it happen. They had good reason to be there. With the flight, America’s planned return to the moon by 2024 moved a small but critical step closer. Easily the most harrowing part of the next lunar flight will be the first, when astronauts climb into their Orion spacecraft at the top of a rocket 36 stories tall, sloshing with more than 5 million pounds of fuel, and ground controllers effectively set it all on fire. If things work as they should, the fire wi...

As backyard cookout season kicks into high gear, many people may be eyeing their sizzling burgers and dogs with suspicion.
