A rocket has been launched in America, carrying a test version of the US space agency’s new crew capsule, Orion.
The ship is designed eventually to take humans beyond the space station, to destinations such as the Moon and Mars.
Orion’s short flight tested important technologies, like its heat shield and parachutes.
The craft ‘splashed down’ – returned to Earth – in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico.
No people were on board when it blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Experts believe a human mission to Mars is still probably around 20 years away.
