NASA continues splashdown tests, this time with dummies

HAMPTON, Va. — NASA says it’s simulating a splashdown of its Orion spacecraft in Virginia, this time with crash test dummies, as it prepares to eventually send humans to Mars.

A pendulum will swing a test capsule into a pool of water Thursday at NASA’s Langley facility in Hampton. Inside will be dummies in spacesuits that represent a 105-pound woman and a 220-pound man.
