Michael Hale, a quality assurance inspector with the Space Systems Department at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., takes a closer look at a set of metal rings recently delivered to the Marshall Center. Two of the rings will be part of an adapter integrating the Orion spacecraft to a Delta IV rocket for a test flight in 2014, and the other two will be part of a ground test adapter for the Space Launch System.
