A weld technician works inside the vehicle after the procedure to weld the bulkhead and nosecone of the Orion spacecraft together at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility, New Orleans, La. Nondestructive evaluations will validate the strength and integrity of the weld before the spacecraft is prepped for ground testing in flight-like environments, including static vibration, acoustics and water landing tests.
