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.

Traveling at 20,000 mph, how long would it take Orion to go from Boston to Seattle? #SuperBowlSunday

I'd like to start seeing some real numbers in cosmological terms.

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.

Way to go BB. That is how politicians should be, by getting involved and learning more about "the space exploration! ;-)

What does it take to get Orion to the end zone? Giant parachutes! #SuperBowlSunday

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
