Two events at Kennedy Space Center this week marked another milestone on NASA’s Journey to Mars. The Orion capsule intended for Exploration Mission 1 (EM-1) was delivered to KSC aboard NASA’s Super Guppy Turbine aircraft on Monday, February 1, 2016. Arriving at the former Shuttle Landing Facility on Monday afternoon, the Super Guppy transport had carried the EM-1 pressure vessel from NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility where it had undergone its initial assembly and welding.
