They way that article sounds, the design is complete, they just need a company to build it. I'm wondering how long they will have those ships before 2010 when there going to start using them.

Its about time they are planning on scraping the shuttle though, they are just getting too old i think. Orion is not a bad name either.

Back to the moon though? after all this time there only hoping for the moon again? i think they need to start focusing on getting ships to go further distances than just to the moon and back.

The way I understood it this new ship is simply a replacement for the shuttle. Something that can be reused and can carry a payload tto space or back to Earth.

For landing on the moon I thought they were going to use an updated Apollo craft design. Basically they would take the exact same design as the apollo(after all they know it works) and add new, more powerful computers(the one on the original Apollo was weaker then a modern calculator)

They could also carry out more detailed experiments on the moon, and mabye build a research base there or something, they have the technology to do so.
