U.S. Navy Recovers NASA Orion Space Capsule • EFT-1 in 2022

laatste update: 07-2022


U.S. Navy divers from USS Anchorage (LPD 23) recover the NASA Orion space capsule after it splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on December 5, 2014. The recovery operation marked the end of Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1), the first orbital test flight of the Orion spacecraft.

The craft, without a crew, was launched on December 5, 2014, at 12:05 UTC (7:05 am EST), atop a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Space Launch Complex 37B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The mission was a four-hour, two-orbit test of the Orion crew module featuring a high apogee on the second orbit and concluding with a high-energy reentry at around 20,000 miles per hour.

Units – Expeditionary Strike Group Three, USNS Salvor (T-ARS 52), Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron Eight, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group One, Fleet Combat Camera Pacific, and Fleet Weather Center San Diego.

  1. Technology like 50 years ago.

    Apparently there has been no further development at NASA since the death of Wernher von Braun.

    As long as we waste our scientific resources on the big bang nonsense, we will never get any further in space.

  2. Nasil indiginin goruntusu yok. ortada parasut yok. daha da enteresani 2000 C olan van elien kusagini bu kapsuldeki camlar erimeden nasil gecti? baska sorum yok.

  3. Sorry, but I am amazed that even with NASA pacing that another Orion hasn't launched yet to date…

    Also where is the hatch? Not clear…

  5. This was the rehearsal exercise for recovery of Orion space capsule done by US Navy's frogmen from the warship USS Anchorage. The capsule used was a dummy.
