Lockheed Martin's A New Era of Space Exploration

From Lockheed Martin is this promo film of their view of how the Orion system will be utilized to get us to some pretty exciting places like Lagrange points, asteroids and ultimately Mars. It's self serving, no doubt, however it is a good look at how the main player in the system see's it working as a unit. The film is called A New Era of Space Exploration, which is damn pretentious but a whole lot of fun to watch. Check out this YouTube video

Too bad the asses in Washington DC don't have the forsight that Lockheed has. I just wish it would really happen.

If NASA had just 10% of what is spent on dead end wars, imagine the things that could be done and the places we could go. NASA does very well with the scraps it gets now. Right now NASA is the best in the world for getting into space and successful missions....But at the rate funding is taking a hit, a decade from now, this is likely not to be the case.
