The Super Guppy was carrying the Orion stage adapter that will connect the SLS to the crew vehicle. It’s the only piece of the SLS that is totally unique to Huntsville.
“Unlike the rest of the Space Launch System hardware, it was designed and built here at the Marshall Space Flight Center,” said Orion stage adapter manager Brent Gaddis. “Our engineers designed it and they saw it all the way through the manufacturing process, and now we’re actually seeing it depart and go down to where it’s going to be launched.”
The Super Guppy last visited Huntsville in July to pick up test hardware for the Space Launch System.
