This animation depicts the proposed test flight of the Orion spacecraft in 2014. During the test, which is called Exploration Flight Test -1 (EFT-1), Orion will launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla., perform two orbits, reaching an altitude higher than any achieved by a spacecraft intended for human use since 1973, and then will re-enter and land in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of the United States.
