Florida Today reported that the core structure or pressure vessel of NASA’s Orion spacecraft slated to take astronauts on a mission around the moon has arrived at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) for final assembly. At KSC, a Lockheed Martin team will finish assembly and “integration of the EM-2 spacecraft just as they wrap up work on the EM-1 module, which will launch on an uncrewed, three-week mission past the moon no sooner than 2020.” The core was assembled over the last seven months at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility. The article also includes video and images of the core’s delivery to KSC. (Image Credit: NASA)
