CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- In the Thermal Protection System Facility NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, agency astronaut candidates are briefed on thermal blankets being manufactured for agency spacecraft by TPSF manager, Martin Wilson of Jacobs Technology, far left. Participating in the briefing, from the left, are Christina Hammock, Tyler ‘Nick’ Hague, Victor Glover, John Cassada, Jessica Meir, Andrew Morgan and Anne McClain. Plans call for the Lockheed Martin-built Orion to launch atop a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Exploration Flight Test EFT-1 later this year. The astronaut class of 2013 was selected by NASA after an extensive year-and-a-half search. The new group will help the agency push the boundaries of exploration and travel to new destinations in the solar system.
