Earlier this morning, 11 September 2014, NASA’s Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle made its first voyage on the road to the launch pad. The capsule had been in final assembly at Kennedy Space Center’s Apollo-era Operations and Checkout Building since mid-2012. Now that the spacecraft has been assembled, the next step is to fuel the spacecraft’s Reaction Control System. This will take place in the Payload Hazardous Processing Facility, roughly a mile away from the O&C.
Orion will spend 16 days in the PHPF, where it will then be transferred to another building for installation of its Launch Abort System.
Although designed for the Space Launch System, the first flight-worthy Orion capsule will fly on a Delta IV Heavy rocket for the Exploration Flight Test 1 mission, slated for a December, 2014 liftoff.
This will be NASA’s first spacecraft flight in over three and a half years, and their first capsule design to see flight since 1975.
