We all know there's only one true Orion rocket.

". . .  We know nothing about them, their language, their history or what they look like.  But we can assume this.  They stand for everything we don't stand for.  Also they told me you guys look like dorks. "

Great article, really went into excellent detail about every aspect of the design. It would be good if NASA can make a rocket to launch the thing on though.
It's funny actually , the falcon 9 has exactly half the capacity needed to launch an Orion and full service module, but the falcon heavy has twice the capacity, the dragon really is a much lighter and cheaper to launch design. Then again a pair of Falcon 9's could probably send the Orion and SM up cheaper and immediately.
