  • Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter High Gain Antenna (HGA) installation (June 25, 2005)
  • original description:In the Payload Hazardous Servicing Facility at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre, workers from Lockheed Martin help raise the high-gain antenna vertically for installation on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). After solar array installation, the MRO will be transported to the Vertical Installation Facility in late July. It will join the Atlas V for the final phase of launch preparations. The spacecraft is then scheduled to undergo a functional test, and a final week of integrated testing and closeouts. The MRO was built by Lockheed Martin for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. It is the next major step in Mars exploration and scheduled for launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in a window opening Aug. 10. The MRO is an important next step in fulfilling NASA’s vision of space exploration and ultimately sending human explorers to Mars and beyond.
