Orion Update... Last week, the Launch Abort System shroud was removed from the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV) at Lockheed Martin's Waterton Facility near Denver, Colorado (below). This was in preparation for a multi-point vibration test that will be conducted on the MPCV soon.

The image above is of Orion as it was being readied for the Launch Abort Vehicle Configuration Test...which occurred late last year. The MPCV's first sojourn into space, during the Exploration Flight Test, is currently scheduled for Spring of 2014.

In January of 2011, the Launch Abort System shroud is removed from the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle in preparation for a vibration test at Lockheed Martin in Colorado.
