Orion Hardware Thrives Under Pressure

Orion Flight Test Hardware Thrives Under Pressure

Hardware that will keep harmful gases away from the Orion spacecraft during its first trip to space proved it won't bend under pressure during a recent test at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

The diaphragm for Exploration Flight Test (EFT)-1 was joined to an adapter prototype for pressurized testing. The adapter will connect Orion to a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta IV rocket being constructed at ULA's facility in nearby Decatur, Ala.

The vacuum pressure simulates atmospheric conditions the hardware may experience during the mission
