another "developed internally..." idea from NASA to have a mass saving Orion's landing on LAND option:

Ever thought that maybe they bugged your computer and stole the idea before you even blogged it?

Perhaps gaetanomarano allready works for NASA through an ESA office only he doesn't know it himself because of his split-personality.

the latest Soyuz TMA mission have had a 20 min. delay at reentry and landed about 500 km. away from the planned land site and the astronauts experinced a -10G deceleration force

the same could happen with the Orion, so, I think that it MUST have (also) the land landing option built-in (but made with a design that doesn't add too much weight nor needs a dangerous jettisonable TPS)

just imagine that Orion will have ONLY the sea landing option... and that one of them is planned to land in the Atlantic ocean near the KSC ...but have a Soyuz-TMA11-like delay/slippage... so, it goes to land near Orlando...

that's why I suggest NASA to adopt MY (safe and light) Orion land landing option concept

A) they wouldn't try to land right at KSC, and B) the only way a reentry delay could land in Orlando rather than KSC would be if they were doing a retrograde orbit, which is really unlikely and wouldn't be launched from KSC.

Your conspiracy theories would be more entertaining if they had some science behind them. Or if the site was readable.

with "the plan" that changes nearly every day you can say that for sure, also, a landing site in the ocean near KSC is the logical choice, like was with the Shuttles

the trajectory of the orbital missions' reentry will be from west to east, so, it may happen... however, it's only an example to explain why the Orion must have (also) the land landing option

Post The Orion's "Eiffel Tower" LAS   Posted on: Tue Apr 22, 2008 1:30 am
.

From latest NASA drawings of the Launch Abort System (LAS) it seems that the Orion's tower-LAS is going to be very big and heavy ...like the Tour Eiffel... :)

Well it may weigh 7300 tonnes, but at least it will still be in service in 150 years :)
