Orion is on the move, across the grounds of Kennedy Space Center
Under blue Florida skies, NASA put in motion the next phase of preparations for the first Space Launch System (SLS) mission, Artemis I, with the moving of the Orion capsule from the Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building to the Multi-Payload Processing Facility.
SpaceFlight Insider is currently onsite, continuing our coverage of the advancements being made as SLS prepares to fly, later this year. Previously, SpaceFlight Insider was present as this Orion capsule completed it’s pressure chamber environmental tests and prepared to be moved to Florida.
Once the movement is complete, correspondent Theresa Cross will be assembling her updates, including two exclusive interviews with Program Management.
Sean Costello is a technology professional who also researches, writes about and speaks publicly on the inspiring lessons within international space flight program. Prior to joining SpaceFlight Insider in early 2014, Costello was a freelance photographer and correspondent covering shuttle-era Kennedy Space Center launches for various radio and print news organizations.
