The EFT-1 flight of the Orion spacecraft was a complete success! The Delta IV Heavy rocket blasted off right on time at 7:05 AM EST from Cape Canaveral Air Station. The Orion capsule completed two orbits of the Earth, with the second orbit boosted high enough to get a good dose of radiation in the lower Van Allen Belt and demonstrate performance in that environment. That done, it splashed down in the Pacific Ocean and was recovered by the USS Anchorage. And now: the video replays!
