BoldenandBrandi2“It’s a big day for me, and exciting day for space and, driving up the causeway, looking at all the cars, I think this is a big day for everyone,” said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden as he followed the progress of today’s countdown for the Orion Flight Test.

The new spacecraft is the first designed to take humans beyond low Earth orbit since the Apollo program that sent astronauts to the moon. After completing the test mission, Orion will have one more test flight ahead of it in 2018 before it begins to carry astronauts on missions to deep space.
