LOS ANGELES, December 5. /TASS/. US new Orion spacecraft has completed its first test flight with a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean off California at 08.29am local time, NASA said on Friday.
Orion blasted off for a first trial run from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Friday. The unmanned mission tests how Orion holds up while re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.
Orion, equipped with nearly 1,200 sensors, has made two orbits of Earth at a distance of 5,800 kilometers, 14 times beyond the International Space Station into outer space. The spacecraft was planned to re-enter the atmosphere at a speed of 32,000 km/h, enduring 2,200 degrees Celsius, although 11 parachutes are due to slow its descent to 32km/h near the Earth.
