Orion's LaunchOn December 5, 2014, the Orion capsule launched aboard a Delta V Heavy

I got up early two mornings in a row in order to witness the launch of the Orion space capsule. This marks the return of the United States to the manned space flight program. I have witnessed quite a few launches after the demise of the shuttle program. This was a wonderful, dawn launch. But what was truly amazing was to see the tens of thousands of spectators come to view this mission. In talking to these ordinary citizens, it was heart-warming to see and hear their pride in this next phase of space exploration. We've been away too long.
