Crash Test Dummies In Space.


I never thought I'd see the day we'd have Crash Test Dummies in space, but on the morning news I saw that we just launched the New Orion Space craft to the moon with a complete 3 dummy crew aboard.  The Orion is flying 8 miles off the surface of the moon taking pretty little snap shots of a completely barren gray scale  lumpy surface.  No green cheese to be had, just lots of gray rock and dust scattered amongst the plethora of impact crater distributed there approximately 4.5 billion years ago.  Isn't that exciting?

I wonder what a Crash Test Dummy thinks as he is floating by our closest neighbor?  Not a damn thing, Crash Test Dummies don't think, they're dead.  I bet you thought I was going to personify them and give them a personality, No not today I'm grouchy.

The Orion Space Craft was launched late from the pad at Cap Canaveral due to the hurricane that blew by causing unrest in the neighboring areas.  The Orion Space Craft has about 12 times the thrust as the Saturn 5 Space Craft, the past largest rocket ever flown.  Given the right amount of fuel, the Orion can be equipped to send a mission to Mars, and possibly beyond.  "To Infinity and Beyond," Buzz Light Year would say.

The Orion is meant to be a people carrier.  It will eventually have a live presumably thinking crew who will be able to look out and marvel at the big nothing of space.  We are going to send more men to the Moon.  It's not an "If" anymore, just a when.  The Orion is the next generation of NASA's new space craft that has at least 80% classified tech on board.  Kinda makes you wonder just what they are actually doing?  But, I don't want to go down that Rabbit Hole, as conspiracy theories give me a headache.  We can't have that now can we?

Think of the power of 12 times more thrust than a Saturn 5.  That is mind boggling.  That also means the space craft lifts off and gets into the vacuum a lot faster than previously.  Maybe that keeps the aliens away?  Who knows.

Any who, Crash Test Dummies in Space, sounds like a B rated Sci Fi movie, where's Ed Wood when you need him?

Peace and Balance,
