The Lockheed Martin-built Orion spacecraft made history as it took its first step on a journey to Mars with its successful test flight, Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1). Orion is designed to transport humans to destinations beyond low Earth orbit. During EFT-1, the spacecraft traveled 3,600 miles from Earth, (which is 15 times farther into space than the International Space Station), circled the earth twice in 4.5 hours, and reached temperatures as high as 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
