Lockheed Martin release

Lockheed Martin and Discovery Science Channel Focus on Space in May

Joining Lockheed Martinís annual Space Day celebration, May 4, is the Discovery Science Channel, which is introducing Space Week, May 6-12. With space-related documentaries airing each evening, the centerpiece of Space Week is the premiere of Starship Orion, Tuesday, May 8. Orion is NASAís planned replacement for the Space Shuttle and Lockheed Martin serves as prime contractor to design, develop and build the spacecraft.

The Discovery Science Channel will also air programs about other important NASA missions in which Lockheed Martin played a role, including the Cassini spacecraft, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, the Mars Rovers Spirit and Opportunity, the Transition Region and Coronal Explorer spacecraft, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, and more.
