ORION Update... Technicians placed microphones around the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle and Launch Abort System in preparation for an additional round of testing in the acoustic chamber at Lockheed Martin's Waterton Facility near Denver last week. The vehicle was subjected to acoustic levels of 150 decibels to simulate conditions during launch and abort...if this contingency was necessary.
