There was no tape draped across a finish line, but NASA is celebrating a win. The agency’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity completed its first Red Planet marathon Tuesday -- 26.2 miles (42.195 kilometers) – with a finish time of roughly 11 years and two months.

Welcome Orion! The Orion heat shield that successfully survived a high-velocity reentry during its Dec. 5 flight test, is continuing its journey, now at Marshall. It arrived on Monday, March 9 and will be installed in the Building 4705 7-axis milling and machining center. A team of NASA engineers will analyze core samples of the ablative material that protected the crew module during reentry. This analysis will allow for a better understanding of the material’s performance and provide for improvements in thermal protection models. During flight, the heat shield experienced speeds of about 20,000 mph and temperatures of nearly 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

'Walking' in the vacuum of space, astronaut Terry Virts on the International Space Station​ is seen working to complete a cable routing task while the sun begins to peak over the Earth's horizon on Feb. 21, 2015. Virts and fellow astronaut Barry "Butch" Wilmore completed a 6-hour, 41-minute spacewalk routing more than 300 feet of cable as part of a reconfiguration of the station to enable U.S. commercial crew vehicles under development to dock to the space station in the coming years. 

Virts and Wilmore will start their second spacewalk at 7:10 a.m. EST on Wednesday. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/17OYWqg #spacewalk #launchamerica
