Images: NASA builds Orion mock-up

CNET News.com: "Researchers at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in Southern California have built the first stage of the Orion manned spacecraft--a full-scale model. The mock-up craft, which looks like a flying saucer from a 1950s sci-fi movie, is part of a test of the launch abort system."

The technology doesn't look that different from what was used in the original Apollo program. Still interesting enough to check out.
