NASA unveils Orion spacecraft


Florida Today: NASA and Lockheed Martin unveiled the 1st space-bound Orion spacecraft today as some 450 people gathered at Kennedy Space Center to mark its arrival. It will be the 1st time a spacecraft for human spaceflight has been produced at the center. The production line work will be done by a crew that will total about 400, offsetting some of the job losses caused by the 2011 shutdown of the shuttle program.
