Orion Spacecraft

The last mission for NASA’s Orion spacecraft was December 2014. WFIT’s Rick Glasby tells us when we can expect the next Orion flight.

The weather forecast is 90% favorable for Tuesday night’s launch of a cargo ship to the International Space Station.  WFIT’s Rick Glasby reports from Cape Canaveral. 

The next launch from Cape Canaveral is scheduled for Tuesday, March 22nd at 11:05PM.  Orbital ATK will be sending a cargo ship to the International Space Station.  And on the way back, the vehicle will host the biggest man-made fire in space… ever.  Rick Glasby explains it all in this video.
