BACKSTREAM IS HERE AT NASA
NASA is planning to launch an unmanned test flight of its new Orion spacecraft today. The test flight will commence with a sunrise liftoff in a first attempt to ready the spacecraft to eventually be used to carry people to Mars in future decades. If NASA is ultimately successful with Orion in future, it will mark the agency’s first manned spacecraft since the Space Shuttle back in 1981. Follow the live feed above to see today’s test flight in full at 7:17AM ET.
