It looks like double-decker seating is in store for the astronauts who travel in the Orion spacecraft.

NASA’s new spacecraft will be used for the next key missions to an asteroid in orbit about our Moon and later, to Mars.

The first crewed mission is expected to occur no later than April 2023.

Spacecraft testing, uncrewed, occurred in December 2014, facilitating design and engineering.
