Orphaned references in Orion (spacecraft)Edit

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Orion (spacecraft)'s orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "nsf-20180911":

  • From Space Launch System: Sloss, Philip (11 September 2018). "NASA updates Lunar Gateway plans". NASASpaceFlight.com. Retrieved 17 September 2018.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 22:01, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

Updating the spoken version of the articleEdit

The spoken version of this article is now 5 years old, and there have been many major changes in that timeframe, and therefore I believe it to be appropriate to create a new version based on the current version of the article. I would personally be willing to record myself speaking this article.

Merger proposalEdit

The Orion article was tagged by user:Beland on 2 Nov 2019 for a Merge, but they stated no rationale for the merger. He/she proposed Crew Exploration Vehicle merging into Orion (spacecraft). Rowan Forest (talk) 15:57, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Don't merge - The Orion article is very long as it is and it will grow even larger as it begins to perform its several missions. I think that a brief mention in the History section is enough. Cheers, Rowan Forest (talk) 15:57, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

@Rowan Forest: Hey, thanks for getting the conversation rolling. The main reason I proposed the merge is that it's unclear to me what the difference between the CEV and the Orion actually is. Aren't they the same thing by different names? -- Beland (talk) 19:07, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Hello. The Crew Exploration Vehicle was the generic name for a needed spacecraft. Several concepts were submitted, two were selected as finalists. It is definitely related, but as a history of Orion. Rowan Forest (talk) 19:17, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
Ah, thanks for the clarification. I've updated the article and dropped the merge tag. -- Beland (talk) 17:35, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
