Future Flight: Orion

Orion

Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor building the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, NASA’s first spacecraft designed for long-duration, human-rated deep space exploration. Orion will transport humans to interplanetary destinations beyond low Earth orbit, such as the moon and Mars, and return them safely back to Earth. The Exploration Mission-1 Orion spacecraft, on-track to launch in 2018, is undergoing assembly and test at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
