Orion, oops I mean NASA's MPCV Does Tour

NASA Spacecraft to Make Cross Country Voyage, NASA

"NASA is inviting the public to view a test version of the agency's next spacecraft that will carry humans into deep space.

The Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, which NASA announced last month would be the agency's deep space crew module based on the original work on the Orion capsule, will make three stops as it travels by truck from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in California to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida."

Marc's note: Tucson, Austin and Tallahassee residents can get an up close and personal look at the MPCV. Goodness, can't we just call it Orion or Orion2? The public's just going to go huh with that acronym.
