NASA Completes the Orion Requirements

NASA has baselined the Orion requirements. There are over "1,700 topics covering all aspects of vehicle performance, design and qualification were discussed during the course of the formal review. "

Talk about over management. Don't get me wrong, I have worked on many government requirements reviews and I am not surprised by this. I also know that each of these requirements will translate into three or four system and sub-system level requirements when they hit the contractors.

And of course they won't pay attention to them until it is time to do formal testing. It is a cycle of death.

There is really only one real requirement,

Carry 6 astronauts to the Moon and back many times. Try not to kill them.

Of course that's just me.
