NASA Orion

Testing 1-2-3! Engineers at the NASA’s Plum Brook Station in Sandusky, Ohio, began the first of a series of modal tests on an Orion service module structural test article provided by the European Space Agency. This test vibrates spacecraft structural elements at various frequencies to simulate how launch vibrations and acoustics will affect the vehicle.

Ernie's Rubber Duckie flew on Orion and landed in his bathtub! Orion landed in a much bigger bathtub after flight, the Pacific Ocean. The US Navy helped pull Orion out of the ocean just like Ernie puts Rubber Duckie up after bath time. Orion landed right on target and the US Navy used a single ship to scoop up Orion and take it to San Diego, California where it was put on a truck and driven to Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Thanks Mark.  I now feel more powerful as I lift my rubber ducky out of the bubbles. DG  lol

Slimey flew on Orion last December. Eartha, Dusty, and Sloppy welcome him home. Orion can carry a crew of 4. Slimey and his family are welcome on board.

Happy #MoonDay ! On our next flight, Orion will pass within 100KM (62 Miles) of the lunar surface.

Grover’s cape protects him and gives him super powers. More so now that it has been to space on Orion. Orion doesn't have a cape but we do have tiles that wrap around to protect us from heat and debris. The lightweight tiles are similar to ones used on the Space Shuttle and are used to cover the top part of Orion. Orion also uses a large heat shield on the bottom to protect it against the heat of reentry - 4000°F!

Cookie Monster likes cookies straight from the oven. They look like Orion's heat shield, but are not as hot. During flight our heat shield protected us from 4000°F, 10 times hotter than temperature required to bake cookies. The temperature was caused by Orion slamming into the atmosphere at 20,000mph - this is much faster than most ovens can travel.

The crew module adapter simulator is unloaded at NASA Glenn Research Center's Plum Brook Station. The adapter will be attached to the service module structural test article provided by the European Space Agency and will undergo testing at the Space Power Facility at Plum Brook.

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
