We will be covering the Flyby of the moon by the Orion spacecraft Five days into the 25.5-day Artemis I mission, Orion continues on its trajectory toward the Moon. Flight controllers in the White Flight Control Room at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston captured additional imagery of the Moon using the optical navigation camera. Gathering imagery of the Earth and the Moon at different phases and distances will provide an enhanced body of data to certify its effectiveness as a location determination aid for future missions under changing lighting conditions. Orion completed its third outbound trajectory correction burn at 6:12 a.m. CST, firing the auxiliary thruster engines for a duration of 6 seconds at a rate of 3.39 feet per second to accelerate Orion and adjust the spacecraft’s p...
NASA Artemis 1 Orion Spacecraft LIVE Tracking During its Journey to Moon
NASA’s Orion spacecraft has captured a stunning view of the moon. The spacecraft, which blasted off on its debut flight atop the Space Launch System rocket on Wednesday, is expected to reach the moon on Monday. Three test dummies are inside.

NASA engineers go in-depth explaining how the Artemis 1 Orion spacecraft will work during its mission.
For NASA’s Artemis I (Artemis-1) mission to the Moon, the Orion spacecraft performed an outbound powered flyby burn by firing the orbital maneuvering system engine for 2 minutes and 30 seconds in order to accelerate the spacecraft, harness the force from the Moon’s gravity, and direct it toward a distant retrograde orbit beyond the Moon.

Artemis 1 Live Tracker Artemis I, formerly Exploration Mission-1, will be the first integrated test of NASA’s deep space exploration systems: the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and the ground systems at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, Artemis I will be an uncrewed flight test that will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration, and demonstrate our commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond. During this flight, the spacecraft will launch on the most powerful rocket in the world and fly farther than any spacecraft built for humans has ever flown. It will travel 280,000 miles from Earth, thousands of miles beyond the Moon over the course of about a four to...

For NASA’s Artemis I (Artemis-1) mission to the Moon, the upper stage of the Space Launch System (SLS) performed the Trans-lunar injection about one hour and 30 minutes after being launched from Launch Pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, on 16 November 2022, at 06:48 UTC (01:48 EST). About one hour and 58 minutes after launch, the Orion spacecraft successfully separated from the upper stage.

For NASA’s Artemis I (Artemis-1) mission to the Moon, the Orion spacecraft returned images of the Earth approximately nine hours and 25 minutes after being launched from Launch Pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, on 16 November 2022, at 06:48 UTC (01:48 EST).
Watch live as our mega Moon rocket launches an uncrewed Orion spacecraft on a six-week mission around the Moon and back to Earth. NASA is targeting Wednesday, Nov. 16, for the launch of the Artemis I Moon mission during a two-hour launch window that opens at 1:04 a.m. EST (0604 UTC). During #Artemis I, Orion will lift off aboard the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and travel 280,000 miles (450,000 km) from Earth and 40,000 miles (64,000 km) beyond the far side of the Moon, carrying science and technology payloads to expand our understanding of lunar science, technology developments, and deep space radiation. Through Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon, paving the way for a long-term lunar presence and serving as a steppingstone to se...
