When Mission: Space returns to Epcot in a few weeks time, gone will be the Orange and Green Team mission names, replaced with new monikers that will reflect the variations in the two versions of the ride.

The reanimated classic version, or Orange Team mission, will be renamed “Mission: Space – Mars”, while the completely new family-friendly version will go by the name “Mission: Space – Earth”. The new names reflect the destinations of the two different versions of the ride.

Is orange going to be the same video with upraded quality, or will the experience of getting to Mars itself be different?

Can we still nickname the two versions Easy and Queasy? Or will the orange version (now just Mars) not be the queasy/spinning version any more?

According to Disney Parks Blog post (https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2017/07/mission-space-relaunches-aug-13-with-brand-new-experiences/), they say nothing about changing the names of the “missions” and still in-fact call them “Orange Mission” and “Green Mission”.

Just rebuild Horizons!

It was 100x better than “mission: experience nausea while looking at a tiny screen.” I can get that magical experience just by reading the news.
