NASA held a media briefing yesterday to discuss the upcoming launch of the Orion Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1) atop a Boeing Delta IV on December 4.

According to a NASA press release, Orion leaves Kennedy Space Center's industrial area on Monday November 10 for transport over to Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

EFT-1 is an uncrewed test flight, sending Orion 3,600 miles from the Earth on a two-orbit mission before it returns to a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.
