To the Moon! Orion’s Next Giant Leap into Deep Space
NASA’s Artemis program has a bold charter to land American astronauts, including the first woman and the next man, on the Moon by 2024. To achieve this feat, the Orion spacecraft has been designed, developed and tested by Lockheed Martin to gear up for our nation’s next giant leap into deep space. Dr. Mike Hawes, Lockheed Martin Vice President for Human Space Exploration and Orion Program Manager, will provide a behind-the-scenes look at Orion’s development and technology innovations that empower this next generation spacecraft to take astronauts to explore farther than humankind has ever ventured.
