Led by center director Bob Cabana, Kennedy Space Center staff led the media yesterday on a tour of the Orion capsule scheduled to launch next year, and the Operations & Checkout building.

Todd Halvorson of Florida Today reports:

President Barack Obama’s push to accelerate a human expedition to an asteroid is a daunting gauntlet for NASA, but one that can be accomplished, agency officials said Monday.

“This is not going to be easy,” said Kennedy Space Center Director Robert Cabana, who piloted two shuttle flights and served as mission commander on two others ...

“I think it’s really neat that the first time we fly (Orion) with crew, they’ve got some place to go with it, and something to accomplish with it,” Cabana said. “We’re excited about it. Absolutely.”
