Caption: Orion spacecraft post-flight acoustics testing. Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1) Crew Module (CM) of the Orion spacecraft undergoing Direct Field Acoustic (DFA) testing at the Lockheed-Martin (LM) Reverberant Acoustic Lab (RAL), in Waterton, Colorado, USA. Direct Field Acoustic testing uses more than 1,500 customized, high-energy speakers configured in a circle around the vehicle. This test simulates the intense acoustic loads Orion will experience during launch and ascent. The data gathered will be used to develop predictive algorithms for future tests. Developed by NASA, the first Orion crewed launches are scheduled for around 2023. The Orion spacecraft are intended for use in Earth orbit, and for human exploration of the Moon, the asteroids and of Mars. Photographed in March 2016.
