Preparing for Flight - NASA Space Shuttle

Technicians carefully position an Orion flight test crew module to be airlifted from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center to the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. The crew module will be used for the Orion Launch Abort System Pad Abort-1 flight test, the first of five planned Orion Launch Abort System Pad flight tests in NASA's Constellation program, which are scheduled for early 2010.
