NASA powers up Orion spacecraft for the first time

 Designed to go beyond low Earth orbit, Orion will be able to take humans farther than we’ve ever been before, eventually even to Mars. It embarks on its first test flight into space next year, and in preparation for this, NASA switched the spacecraft on for the first time this week.

During this particular test, technicians powered up Orion's systems and ran it through several scenarios, using the on-board computer, power, and data systems. The good news is that everything worked according to plan. This was just one in a long series of tests that Orion has successfully passed.
