IMAGES OF THE DAY... At the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, Louisiana, construction continues on the very first Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) that will soar into space two years from now. Known as Exploration Flight Test 1, the MPCV demonstration will be launched into Earth orbit onboard a Delta IV rocket in late 2013.

Construction continues on the Orion spacecraft that will launch on Exploration Flight Test 1 in late 2013.
