Air Products Supplies NASA Orion Launch Beginning New Era of Space Travel

Air Products played a key role, as it always has in NASA space exploration, when the Orion EFT-1 carried by a Delta IV Heavy rocket lifted off the launch pad signaling the beginning of a new era in deep space travel. Spanning what is over a 50 year working relationship, Air Products now adds Orion's lift off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida to its list of support for NASA space missions by providing a reliable supply of industrial gases and other services. Air Products had also fueled all NASA travels of the Space Shuttle, Apollo, and earlier Mercury missions. The Orion EFT-1 was originally scheduled for launch yesterday, but several factors postponed it until December 5, 2014. The delay also required some quick action on the part of Air Products, which needed to promptly deliver to the site an additional five trailers of liquid hydrogen and two more trailers of liquid helium from production facilities to replace product already used during the initial launch attempt. The earlier delivery of industrial gases for the initial launch included much larger quantities of liquid hydrogen and liquid helium, which is stored in large tanks at Cape Canaveral for use during lift off. Hydrogen is used in the propellant fuel mix for the rocket, and helium is an inerting gas used to purge and help force the fuel to the engines. Orion's mission after lifting off from the Delta IV Heavy rocket is to perform the first flight test in space of the spacecraft that is designed to carry astronauts on exploration missions into deep space. Orion is flying this mission without astronauts and is to orbit the Earth twice and reach about 3,600 miles above the planet, which is 15 times higher than the International Space Station, before its return to Earth where it is to splashdown in the Pacific Ocean and be recovered by NASA and U.S. Navy teams.
