By AFP     Dec 5, 2014 in World

NASA's unmanned Orion space capsule splashed down in the Pacific Ocean off Baja California on Friday following its first flight test, the US space agency said.

"There is your new spacecraft, America," NASA commentator Rob Navias said, as live aerial images showed the capsule floating toward the water aided by three parachutes.

Orion splashed down in the Pacific four hours and 24 minutes after launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, he said.
