NASA pushed itself forward again with a successful Orion launch and orbital flight. This launch utilized the powerful Delta IV booster, capable of putting 23 tons into space. Once in low Earth orbit, the second stage pushed the Orion capsule out to 3600 miles where it orbited 15x further out than the ISS. NASA notes this as remarkable because no craft designed for humans has been out that far since the lunar missions in the 70s. It's planned to be an entire system of equipment with an even larger booster set to push manned spaceflight back outside of Earth's orbit for deep space missions.
