Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding the successful test flight of NASA’s Orion spacecraft from Kennedy Space Center:

“I’d like to congratulate NASA, Florida’s entire space community and all the dedicated Americans who worked to make Friday’s test flight of the Orion spacecraft an overwhelming success. The Exploration Flight Test 1 mission was an important step forward in mankind’s quest to discover and explore the solar system, and in our country’s goal of one day leaving boot prints on Mars. It’s a testament to American ingenuity and only the latest of many recent glimpses into what lies ahead for the American people in the 21st century.”
