Range Tracking

T-2 days and counting until EFT-1

Mission managers have given NASA’s Orion spacecraft a “go” for the launch of Exploration Flight Test-1 atop a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket on Thursday, 4 December 2014, though weather looks to be a concern. Sam did not make it into this collage – something I feel a little bad about – which includes photos I have taken over the years of the Space Launch System mobile launch tower, which Orion will someday launch from, an Orion test article complete with banners on display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and a red decal seen stuck on an old box while on a Kennedy Space Center tour.
