Caption: Orion spacecraft test flight preparations. Orion spacecraft mounted on a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Space Launch Complex 37, Florida, USA, prior to the first test flight in 2014. The uncrewed Orion spacecraft orbited the Earth twice, before landing in the Pacific Ocean. Developed by NASA, the test flight (Exploration Flight Test 1, EFT-1) took place on 5 December 2014. 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 on 3 December 2014.
