NASA's new deep space exploration spacecraft called Orion takes humans farther into space than ever before including landing on an asteroid, the moons of Mars, and Mars itself.
NASA’s Orion spacecraft is built to take humans farther than they’ve ever gone before. Orion will serve as the exploration vehicle that will carry the crew to space, provide emergency abort capability, sustain the crew during the space travel, and provide safe re-entry from deep space return velocities. Orion will launch on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System.
Exploration Mission-1 is the first in a series of increasingly complex missions that will enable human deep space exploration to the Moon and beyond
