Orion, Well Done

Looking like a steak left too long on the barbecue, NASA's Orion crew capsule returned December 18 to Kennedy Space Center after a cross-country procession.

NASA held a media event yesterday to unveil the capsule's current condition. NASA has yet to post images or video, but you can see both in this Florida Today report by James Dean.

I was driving through KSC near Operations & Checkout Thursday when I saw workers lining the road, videographers stationed at roadside and the security helicopter overhead. In the distance I saw this procession approaching, recognized the container and realized it was Orion returning.

Below are some images posted on KSC's Media Gallery page of the procession.
