Thursday, June 16, 2011

NASA’s prototype multi-purpose crew vehicle is making a cross-country tour, with several public viewing stops, on its way to Kennedy Space Center.

The vehicle, a test module based on Lockheed Martin’s Orion capsule design, will make three stops as it travels by truck from Dryden Flight Research Center in California to KSC: June 15-16 at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Ariz.; June 19-20 at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin, Texas; and June 24-25 at the Tallahassee Challenger Learning Center.

The test module will be displayed June 29-July 4 at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex before moving to KSC’s operations and checkout facility for further study.
