Important strides have been made in 2018 for NASA’s Orion, Space Launch System (SLS) and Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) programs. Teams across America and in Europe are developing and building the spacecraft, rocket and infrastructure necessary to send humans to deep space destinations including the Moon and beyond. Some major milestones include: Orion – parachute drop testing at the Yuma Proving Ground; Exploration Mission 2 crew module cone welding; Ascent Abort-2 crew module outfitting; crew module uprighting system testing; SLS – intertank test article transported to NASA’s Pegasus barge at Michoud Assembly Facility and arrival at Marshall Space Flight Center; core stage engine section structural tests; successful RS-25 rocket engine testing; EGS – Orion crew module recovery rehearsal; crew access arm install on the Mobile Launcher; Interim Cryogenic Propulsion Stage umbilical install; Firing Room 1 demonstration.
