Named after one of the largest constellations in the night sky, Orion is the name given to the spacecraft that will carry the first woman and first person of color to the Moon. But before we fly astronauts aboard, the spacecraft, powered by our Space Launch System rocket, will travel tens of thousands of miles on a flight test around the Moon. Watch as teams at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center prepare Orion for that journey, outfitting the spacecraft with its necessary components as it moves along its path to the pad.
