On Monday, July 2, NASA officials answered questions about the Orion spacecraft in a live television broadcast from followers of NASA's social media accounts.
NASA's Orion program reached a major milestone on June 28, 2012, when the first space-bound Orion crew capsule arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Construction on the spacecraft was finished at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in Louisiana this week, and final outfitting and heat shield installation will take place at KSC. The Orion spacecraft will carry astronauts farther into the solar system than ever before. It will provide emergency abort capability, sustain the crew during the space travel and provide safe re-entry from deep space. This spacecraft will fly on Exploration Flight Test-1, an unmanned test that is scheduled two years from now.
