The ship was assembled at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This was done after installing the equipment and testing the modules individually. Now the NASA team will launch the combined apparatus for the first time.

Next will be a series of rigorous tests to prepare Orion for its flight to the Moon. In particular, the ship will be tested in a pressure chamber, which will allow the device to operate in conditions as close as possible to the conditions of deep space.

In 2024, new steps will be implemented: adding solar wings, filling the tanks with fuel, and then connecting the finished Orion to a launch abort system that will ensure the safety of astronauts in the event of failures.
