NASA's Artemis I Orion Spacecraft: Earth View

NASA's Artemis I Orion Spacecraft: Earth View

This is the NASA Artemis I Orion spacecraft's view of Earth after emerging from behind the Moon due to the successful completion of its outbound powered flyby maneuver. 

Watch a replay of the NASA Artemis I Orion spacecraft's historic flyby of the Moon as it approached for its powered flyby maneuver. Orion passed within 80 miles (130 km) of the lunar surface.

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.
