A US space capsule that could help get humans to Mars is about to make its maiden flight.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Quote:NASA's choice of a blunt-bottomed conical capsule design on both spacecraft isn't an accident. The blunt cone shape causes high drag to help slow the craft as it descends. When it returns to earth from its farther-flung missions, Orion will be traveling at nearly 7 miles per second, a hypersonic speed multiple times faster than the speed of sound. At that speed, managing the enormous temperatures the craft will generate—which exceed 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit—will require an effective design with intense shielding. That's one reason the initial test flight's prime job is to assess the updated shield built for Orion.



It appears this shape is preferred, I notice if we squish it down further we may have an alien spacecraft shape (future shape of things to come?).
