So on Saturday Cheri and I went down to the American Airlines Center to see the Orion Space Capsule.  This is one of the platforms used for sizing the capsule for where the astronauts set and where the equipment would be mounted.  They also had a couple models of the capsule, service module, and escape tower.  All in all it was a very cool visit.

The service module is going to have solar panels on the sides of it and what you can’t see in this photo is a dish antenna on the side.  The service module is going to be used to store items they need on their trips and also for propulsion after they reach space.
