Another small step: Nasa unveils Orion capsule bound to take astronauts to Mars

It may look a little underwhelming but this little craft’s lofty goal is to take astronauts out of an Earth orbit for the first time since the 1970s – and possibly land man on Mars.

In front of more than 450 guests and dignitaries, Nasa officially unveiled the Orion crew capsule at a ‘welcoming ceremony’ at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Despite funding and planning cuts at the space agency, the capsule is part of a concerted effort to kickstart a new era in deep space exploration by humans.

Taking shape: The Orion, which mimics the classic conical shape of the Apollo mission crew capsules, is one of the most advanced craft ever built
