NASA team members at the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans are building the Orion flight test vehicle currently planned for an uncrewed orbital flight in 2014. The flight test will verify important systems onboard the spacecraft as it re-enters the Earth's atmosphere at speeds required for returning from deep space exploration targets. Construction of the Orion multi-purpose crew vehicle began in September of this year; completion is expected in early 2012.
