Orion Heats Up
The first Orion spacecraft is coming together in preparation for its test flight in 2014. Systems and parts are being built across the country before shipping to Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and the Mission Control Center in Houston is being transformed to support the flight from the ground.
"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the street to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space." - The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams 1952 - 2001
