NASA's Artemis I Orion Spacecraft: Earth, Moon & Interior Cabin Views

NASA's Artemis I Orion Spacecraft: Earth, Moon & Interior Cabin Views

Images 1-4: On flight day 12, Nov. 27, 2022, of the 25.5-day Artemis I mission, a camera on the tip of one of Orion’s solar arrays captured the Earth and Moon as Orion travels in a distant retrograde orbit around the Moon. 

Images 5-6: On flight day 9, Nov. 24, 2022, the inside of Orion shows the display of the Callisto payload. Callisto is Lockheed Martin’s technology demonstration in collaboration with Amazon and Cisco, testing voice-activated and video technology that may assist future astronauts on deep space missions.

The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, Artemis I is an uncrewed flight test that will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration. It will demonstrate NASA's commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond. Orion is completing a 25-day test of all key systems. It will travel 280,000 miles from Earth, thousands of miles beyond the Moon. Orion will stay in space longer than any ship for astronauts has done without docking to a space station and return home faster and hotter than ever before.

On the Artemis III Mission, NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the surface of the Moon, paving the way for a long-term lunar presence and serving as a steppingstone on the way to Mars.
