NASA's Orion Spacecraft and the Space Launch System rocket will carry humans back the Moon and on to Mars. Meet an Ascent Abort Test Director and learn how astronauts stay safe in a launch abort scenario. Participants will take part in a series of Orion themed hands-on activities, learn how to engage students during the live Orion Ascent Abort-2 test in the Spring of 2019, and walk away with access to numerous Deep Space Exploration System digital resources and engaging activities.
