The Orion Launch Abort System, or LAS, pathfinder returned home to NASA Langley in October 2010 for a short stay as it makes its way to NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The hardware was built at Langley and was used in preparation for the highly successful launch abort system flight test, called Pad Abort, at the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

@NASA_Langley Helicopter drop test

This crash test of a small, lightweight helicopter at Langley Research Center was a smashing success, literally -- just as NASA engineers had predicted.

Drop Test at the Lunar Landing Research Facility (1974)

Originally named the Lunar Landing Research Facility (LLRF), the gantry became operational in 1965 and allowed astronauts like Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin to train for Apollo final 150 feet before landing on the moon.

Orion Splashdown Tests Performed At Langley Hydro Impact Basin

NASA engineers and contractors have successfully completed the Orion Launch Abort System (LAS) tower, marking a milestone that puts NASA one step closer to sending Orion 3,600 miles into space on the uncrewed Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1) mission, scheduled to launch in September 2014. Orion is America’s next generation spacecraft that will carry astronauts to destinations beyond low Earth orbit.

After enduring searing temperatures during its first flight test, Orion's heat shield is preparing to cool off at the Hydro Impact Basin at NASA Langley Hampton, Virginia. The 16.5-foot diameter heat shield arrived at Langley in the early hours of June 4, 2015.  Engineers will integrate the heat shield with an Orion crew module mockup and simulate scenarios for parachute landings with different wind conditions and wave heights the spacecraft could experience when landing in the Pacific…

NASA Langley unveils robotic arm, ISAAC

NASA Langley unveiled a seven-ton, two-story robotic arm that builds components suited for spacecraft. ISAAC stands for Integrated Structural Assembly of Adv.

NASA's Langley center director, Lesa Roe, was a key note speaker at the 2012 SpaceVision conference - the largest student-run and student-focused space conference in the nation.

More than 300 university students from across the nation stared wide-eyed as a video of the International Space Station (ISS) played in front of them.
