NASA Prepares To Test New Spacecraft (That You've Likely Never Heard Of)

The Orion capsule is poised to make its first test flight Thursday. If all goes as planned, the unmanned vehicle will orbit Earth twice before splashing into the Pacific Ocean.

NASA is about to launch a new spaceship into orbit, and Mallory Loe has never heard of it.

"I mean, technically, NASA doesn't have another spaceship, do they?" she asks incredulously during a visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

She's hardly the only one who doesn't know about this new spacecraft. In fact, none of a half-dozen tourists NPR interviewed in the museum's lobby was aware of the Orion spaceship.

Actor Mickey Rourke Takes Another Jab At Boxing

Originally published on Mon December 1, 2014 5:27 am

At age 62, actor Mickey Rourke last week returned to his other love: boxing.

He fought a match in Moscow and won.

True, some dismissed his opponent.

He's described by the Daily Mail as a man who's lost 9 of 10 pro matches and is homeless.

Still Rourke won, and said of returning to the ring, "It's better to live in fear than go on in shame."

He plans more fights in Russia, though there's no word when he faces Vladimir Putin.

Chances are, if you ordered a bunch of items in the San Francisco Bay Area recently, Amazon put that box together here.
