Engineers inside the Launch Abort System Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida have attached the final pieces of hardware to the Orion spacecraft as it gets ever so closer to its December 4 lift-off date. The four ogive panels of the Launch Abort System (LAS) now enshroud the capsule...allowing viewers to get a preview of how the very top of the Space Launch System will look once Orion and the LAS are mated to NASA's future rocket a few years from now. Orion will be transported to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in mid-November before it is finally attached to the Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle that will send the capsule to Earth orbit on Exploration Flight Test-1. Stay tuned.
