    Ok...I watched the video. Nowhere in there did the engineer make the claim that NASA "can't get past the Van Allen radiation belts". He merely stated that it was a challenge, and that shielding would protect the spacecraft.

    Exactly. They need to test the design, but some people like to take any little tid bit out of context that they can, and point to it as "proof". lol

    Not testing Orion would be like Boeing designing a new plane, but not bothering to test it prior to the first passengers getting on board because they've built other kinds of planes before. lol
