    NASA's Constellation Program continues work on the development of the Orion spacecraft that will return humans to the moon and prepare for future voyages to Mars and other destinations in our solar system. This one-of-a-series artist's rendering represents a concept of the abort flight tests of the Orion crew exploration vehicle's Launch Abort System at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. The ascent abort tests will use ascent abort boosters purchased through the U.S. Air Force.

    NASA's Constellation Program continues work on the development of the Orion spacecraft that will return humans to the moon and prepare for future voyages to Mars and other destinations in our solar system. This one-of-a-series artist's rendering represents a concept of the abort flight tests of the Orion crew exploration vehicle's Launch Abort System and landing systems at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. This concept shows the crew module as it lands on Earth under its recovery parachutes (out of scene) using air bags to help soften landings on dry land.
