Two humans are getting ready to say farewell to Earth for nearly 12 months. Tomorrow, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian Cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko will launch to the International Space Station, beginning a one-year mission in space, testing the limits of human research, space exploration and the human spirit. Launch is set for 3:42 p.m. EDT. NASA TV coverage will begin at 2:30 p.m. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1BPayRQ

The team at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center​ played a crucial role in making our first flight a success! They built the spacecraft adapter that attached Orion to the launch vehicle, machined 975 parts for the Orion spacecraft, worked on the launch abort system, and are now partnering with NASA's Ames Research to analyze the heat shield.

Engineers at Kennedy Space Center prepare the Orion heat shield for transport to Marshall Space Flight Center for testing. The heat shield flew on Orion's flight test in December 2014, protecting the spacecraft from 4000 degree F temperatures during reentry.

What did we learn from Orion's first flight?
NASA’s Orion spacecraft continues on the agency’s journey to Mars as engineers analyze data from the spacecraft’s December flight test.

Did you know that Orion's life support system is designed to work with the space suits to provide additional level of safety for astronauts during flight?

Congratulations Orbital/ATK and Space Launch System team on a successful test of the most powerful solid rocket booster (SRB) ever built. Bill Hill from NASA’s Exploration Systems Development division and NASA Orion Program’s Mark Kirasich were on hand to observe the test of the SRB which will help lift Orion on our next flight.

At Kennedy Space Center, Lockheed Martin engineers remove the heat shield from Orion. The heat shield, which protected Orion as it returned to Earth from an altitude of 3600 miles, will be transported to Marshall Space Flight Center for testing.

Story
Tagline
NASA's beyond earth orbit exploration vehicle
Introduction
The Orion spacecraft will serve as the exploration vehicle that will carry the crew to space, provide emergency abort capability, sustain the crew during the space travel, and provide safe re-entry from deep space return velocities.
  • Spacecraft to serve as the primary crew vehicle for missions beyond LEO
  • Capable of conducting regular in-space operations (rendezvous, docking, extravehicular activity) in conjunction with payloads delivered by the Space Launch System (SLS) for missions beyond LEO
  • Capability to be a backup system for International Space Station cargo and crew delivery
