Orions first flight on This Week @NASA - December 8, 2014

The successful first flight test of NASAs Orion spacecraft on Dec. 5 not only was a historic moment for the agency but also was a critical step on NASAs Journey to Mars. Orion rode to space from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on a Delta IV heavy rocket with no crew, but loaded with about 1,200 sensors. The flight test basically was a compilation of the riskiest events that will happen when astronauts fly on Orion on deep space missions. Also, Journey to Mars briefing, 1st SLS flight barrel and Commercial crew milestone.
