Submission + - ESA re-entry module not Apollo like!

bmcage writes: The ESA unveiled the Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle, a real re-entry vehicule. Although it will not be reused, it has a better geometry than NASA's Orion or the Russian Soyuz, giving better lift, and control. This is not done by the addition of useless wings, but by using two brakes. Finally a departure from the Apollo design that is actually better?
At the very least, ESA has learnt how to make nice flash presentations!
