Meet musician and acoustic engineer Aron Hozman. Aron is part of the team at NASA Glenn’s Plum Brook Station in Ohio that gives Orion a thorough sound check. He is in charge of blasting Orion with more than 140 dB of sound, louder than an AC/DC concert, so engineers can fine tune the spacecraft’s structural integrity to keep astronauts safe during deep-space exploration missions throughout our solar system. The series of acoustics tests are conducted to make sure Orion can withstand the trip to space atop NASA’s powerful Space Launch System rocket before its next mission beyond the moon in 2018.

Aron is one of many dedicated rocket scientists and engineers across the country who are making space exploration of the future possible today.

+fernando quaresma But, when they test wings, they say nice wing test..In this picture they are making some tests to improve the tail of Orion. So you shouldn't have asked such a brilliant question...The field is yours to continue your mission....

Orion's service module primary structure arrives in Bremen, Germany. The service module, developed by Airbus Defence and Space for the European Space Agency, will provide power and propulsion for Orion during our flight in 2018.

Technicians at the Operations and Checkout building at Kennedy Space Center prepare Orion for the proof pressure test. The test incrementally pressurizes the spacecraft with breathing air and is designed to demonstrate weld strength capability and structural performance at maximum flight operating pressures.

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
