Coalition for Space Exploration Congratulates NASA on a Successful Exploration Flight Test for Orion
The Coalition for Space Exploration congratulates NASA and its industry team on the successful launch and test flight of the Orion spacecraft. The flight marked the first steps toward human exploration of deep space.
Orion’s Exploration Flight Test (EFT-1) is a significant step on the road to deep space exploration and the human journey to Mars. Through this test of the Orion spacecraft and eventual tests of the Space Launch System rocket, NASA is providing a viable path forward for human spaceflight.
This giant leap was made possible by the dedication and commitment of skilled engineers, scientists and leaders throughout NASA and its industry partners. Thanks to their efforts, the United States is completing unprecedented milestones towards future space exploration and delivering humans, habitats and space systems beyond our moon and into deep space.
