today I've updated my "Orion's precision LAKE landing at KSC" article

http://www.ghostnasa.com/posts/030orionlakelanding.html

with my idea of an "ON LAND (hundreds times reusable) inflatable airbags landing system"

of course, build a "lake of airbags" may cost several million$ but may allow to SAVE several HUNDREDS million$ to develop the LAND landing Orion's airbags and (most important) SAVE (also) over 1.5 mT on the (now overweighed) Orion's mass, while giving (both) LAND (or LAKE) and SEA landing options to the new capsule!
