NASA's Artemis I Moon Mission: All Access | Episode 2 | JSC

NASA's Artemis I Moon Mission: All Access | Episode 2 | JSC

Artemis All Access - Episode 2: On the eighth day of its mission, Nov. 23, 2022, Orion continues to travel farther away from the Moon as it prepares to enter a distant retrograde orbit. The orbit is “distant” in the sense that it is at a high altitude from the surface of the Moon, and it is “retrograde” because Orion will travel around the Moon opposite the direction the Moon travels around Earth.  

Orion exited the gravitational sphere of influence of the Moon Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 9:49 p.m. CST at a lunar altitude of 39,993 miles. The spacecraft will reach its farthest distance from the Moon Friday, Nov. 25, just before performing the next major burn to enter the orbit. The distant retrograde orbit insertion burn is the second in a pair of maneuvers required to propel Orion into the highly stable orbit that requires minimal fuel consumption while traveling around the Moon.   

Artemis All Access is your look at the latest in Artemis I, the people and technology behind the mission, and what is coming up next. This uncrewed flight test around the Moon will pave the way for a crewed flight test and future human lunar exploration as part of Artemis.  

Live coverage of major events will air on NASA Television, the NASA app, and the agency’s website at
