NASA’s Orion Ascent Abort-2 Presentations

Jun 28, 2019 - June 30, 2019 12:30 - 4:00 PM Journey to Mars: Explorers Wanted

NASA’s Orion spacecraft will carry the first woman and next man to land on the Moon by 2024, and enable sustained presence on and around the Moon by 2028. An integral part of ensuring safe spaceflight is Orion’s Launch Abort System, or LAS. This state-of-the-art crew escape system is attached to the top of the spacecraft and can propel the crew module away from the rocket within milliseconds if a life-threatening event occurs during launch.

From June 28 -30, join Orion and Launch Abort System engineers in Journey to Mars: Explorers Wanted at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to learn more about Ascent Abort-2. The test launch is currently scheduled for July 2, 2019, launching from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Do not miss this opportunity to get real-time information on what NASA is doing right now for the next big steps toward the Moon.
