A nice video sumarising the development of Orion, from inception to today:

As his video shows, the developmental journey taken by the Orion from design inception to its first two launches was definitely grueling not just because of the cancelation of Project Constellation but also because of the first launch of the SLS carrier rocket for the Orion slipping a number of times despite the NASA Authorization Act of 2010 providing for the first SLS launch to take place in 2016. Nevertheless, the launch of the second Orion spacecraft as part of the first SLS flight last year is a welcome result for the Orion spacecraft because it took place a little over a year before the 20th anniversary of the announcement of the Vision for Space Exploration announced in January 2004.

what is the point?
it wasn't "grueling"

The Orion spacecraft was conceived for the Crew Exploration Vehicle component of the Constellation program in the first decade of this century, but after the Ares rocket that would have carried the Orion was cancelled in early 2010 after just one suborbital flight, it had to be reconfigured for launch on the SLS rocket, and it took 12 years for the Orion to be launched to lunar orbit, even though the first launch of the Orion took place in late 2014. Even though Project Constellation had to be canceled in early 2010s because  the Augustine Commission found in late 2009 that the Ares I was not likely to have had its first crewed launch until 2017–2019 under the FY 2010 budget restrictions, the fact that the first crewed flight of the Orion will take place a year from now will show NASA once again that they'll have some not-so-disappointing results from the Orion program.

That is only two sentences.  What is being used to generate this nonsense?

I'm convinced that this poster is using ChatGPT or some sort of AI to generate these responses.

Certainly not a human response.
