NASA’s Orion Spacecraft
1 hours 55 minutes ago. Facebook
More than 100 companies across Texas are helping build SLS and Orion. This week, representatives from NASA, Lockheed Martin, Orbital ATK and Aerojet Rocketdyne are visiting some of those companies and thanking the employees for their hard work on the next class of exploration vehicles for deep space missions, including the journey to Mars.
NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) will continue their international cooperation in space, extending humanity’s presence farther into the solar system than ever before.

International Partnership with Europe Extended for Station and Orion

On this day in 2014, Orion launched on its first flight, reaching an altitude of 3600 miles before returning to Earth at 20,000 miles per hour. Orion will travel 40,000 miles beyond the moon on its next flight atop the Space Launch System.
Our first crewed flight with NASA’s Orion Spacecraft as early as August 2021 will be to the proving ground, an area of space around the moon where astronauts can build and test systems needed to prepare for the challenge of missions to Mars.

A test version of the interim cryogenic propulsion stage (ICPS) for NASA's Space Launch System rocket was loaded into the test stand today at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Two simulators and four qualification articles of the upper part of the SLS will be stacked in the stand and subjected to forces similar to those experienced in flight. The ICPS joins the core stage simulator and...

Layering up for the first flight of SLS and Orion! Technicians from Janicki Industries in Hamilton, Washington, position the layers of the diaphragm for the Orion stage adapter. The adapter will join NASA’s Orion Spacecraft to the interim cryogenic propulsion stage (ICPS) of the SLS rocket. The ICPS is a liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen-based system that will give Orion the in-space push needed...

Thank you to those who served and continue to serve! #VeteransDay
"Flipping" for SLS's first flight! Engineers at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center recently flipped the flight Orion stage adapter, which will be an important piece of connector hardware for SLS. The adapter will join the NASA’s Orion Spacecraft to the rocket's interim cryogenic propulsion stage -- a liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen-based system that will give Orion the in-space push needed to...
