NASA Orion Spacecraft Program

Drawing from more than 50 years of space flight research and development, Orion is designed to meet the evolving needs of our nation’s space program for decades to come. As the flagship of our nation’s next-generation space fleet, Orion will push the envelope of human spaceflight far beyond low Earth orbit. Orion may resemble its Apollo-era predecessors, but its technology and capability are light years apart. Orion features dozens of technology advancements and innovations that have been…

Orion Spacecraft

Orion is NASA's next exploration spacecraft, designed to carry astronauts to destinations in deep space, including an asteroid and Mars. Orion's first flight in December 2014, Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1), will allow engineers to evaluate the systems critical to crew safety, the launch abort system, the heat shield and the parachute system.
