    CEV on How Stuff Works

    Howstuffworks.com has a new article about the Crew Exploration Vehicle. I haven't read the whole thing yet, but what I have read looks like a nice overview.

    Nice article. Just the usual hickup at the end:

    "Since the moon is only three days away, it is safer and less expensive to launch missions to Mars from there."

    Looks pretty good, tho I didn't read the whole thing.

    What is needed, however, is a nifty name for this series of vehicles besides CEV and CLV. We had Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo, the Soviets had Vostok, Voskhod, and Soyuz, I don't know if Shenzhou is an official name for China's vehicle. "CEV' is just so, well, dull...

    "Space shuttle" is descriptive but just as dull as STS. Buran was a cool name.

    Earth's sole legacy will be a very slight increase (0.01%) of the solar metallicity.

    Right now, the program is being called Constellation. It just hasn't been used much in the press.
