The Delta IV Heavy carrying Orion launched on time at 07:05 local time, and at this time the mission is going very well. Orion has already looped around Earth once and the second stage booster has ignited again, pushing it into its second orbit with an apogee (max distance from Earth) of 5,810 km (3,600 miles) which it should reach at 15:10 UTC. Splash landing is expected at approx. 16:30 UTC (11:30 Eastern). – Deskarati
