Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor building the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, NASA’s first spacecraft designed for long-duration, human-rated deep space exploration.

Join a talented team of Orion professionals engaged in the design and fabrication of the only deep-space, human-rated spacecraft that will take humans farther than we have ever gone before. http://www.lockheedmartin.com/orion
