NASA is putting the finishing touches on its next big project, the Orion spacecraft, which is set for liftoff next week.
This unmanned test mission will launch on Dec. 4 at 7:04 a.m. ET on a Delta IV rocket from Cape Canaveral and will land four and a half hours later with a splashdown 600 miles off the coast of San Diego in the Pacific Ocean.
While in orbit, the spacecraft will circle Earth twice at an altitude of 3,600 miles.
