The Orion crew exploration vehicle team is getting ready for the first flight test of its launch safety system. Components are continuing to arrive at the U.S. Army’s White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico where the test, called Pad Abort 1, will take place in November.
The abort motor for the test was shipped from ATK in Salt Lake City last week. Read more about it here: https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/constellation/orion/las_may2009.html
