Coming Attractions

The Orion PA-1 test flight on May 6, 2010. Click the arrow to watch.

On May 6, 2010, NASA tested the Launch Abort System for the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle using a prototype dubbed Pad Abort 1 (PA-1).

The prototype capsule was delivered yesterday to the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center. Photos are below.

I don't know if it's going to be on public display, but it was certainly visible yesterday to anyone who was on a KSC Up Close Tour.
