ORION Explained" NASA's Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle- Details of the Orion four-person capsule that could carry crews to the Moon or an asteroid, beginning in

The capsule will travel about 3,600 miles (5,800 kilometers) from Earth, then zoom back again at high speeds in order to test various systems, including its heat shielding and resistance to radiation.

NASA's Space Launch System: A Bolder Mission —  Space Launch System, or SLS, begins a bolder mission for NASA and the world -- a new era of exploration unlike anything we've done before. Able to carry more payload than the space shuttle and generate more thrust at launch than the Saturn V, SLS will send the Orion spacecraft farther into space than Apollo ever ventured...and that's just the first flight!

Space Launch System: A Bolder Mission

NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) will be the most powerful rocket in history for deep-space missions, including to an asteroid and ultimately to Mars.

Rocket Boosters Prepared For Orion Spacecraft's First Flight - Engineers took another step forward in preparations for the first test flight of NASA’s new Orion spacecraft in December. At the United Launch Alliance (ULA) Horizontal Integration Facility (HIF), at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, the three primary core elements of the ULA Delta IV Heavy rocket recently were integrated, forming the first stage of the launch.
