The first launch of the new NASA Orion spacecraft is this Thursday! Orion is now in place on top of the Delta IV heavy-lift rocket on the launch pad at Kennedy Space Center.
Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1) will test Orion's systems and performance from launch through splashdown. Launch Time is 7:05 a.m. EST from Space Launch Complex 37, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. The Launch Window will last 2 hours, 39 minutes.
I leave for Houston today, and will be at Johnson Space Center in Houston for the NASA Social event for the launch on December 3 and 4. I will post updates on my blog, Twitter and more!
