"A trip to the moon on gossamer wings," as the song lyric goes. This model of the proposed Orion spacecraft looks very much like the Apollo Command Module but with blue wings added. They're not actually wings, however. The blue panels are solar arrays, that will power the spacecraft instead of the heavy and complex fuel cells that powered Apollo.
