NASA’s Orion Engineer Admits They Can’t Get Past Van Allen Radiation Belts
march 16 2015

‘If this does not get the skeptics going wild on the moon debate, we don’t know what will.


In the video presentation above, NASA engineer Kelly Smith explains about many of the risks and pitfalls surrounding the new Orion Deep Space Mission to the planet Mars.

Surprisingly, chief among Kelly’s concerns is whether or not his spacecraft can successfully pass through the perilous Van Allen Radiation Belts. Such is the prospective danger in fact, that NASA will have to send a dumbie craft first in order to ‘test out’ what the potential radiation effects will be on future human crews, as well as on the ship’s delicate sensors and equipment.’

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
