Artemis 1’s Orion capsule still on track for Monday’s moon flyby

NASA’s Artemis 1 Orion capsule is exceeding expectations in deep space and remains on track to fly close to the moon Monday, Nov. 21, agency officials said.

The Artemis 1 mission launched Wednesday morning (November 16), sending an uncrewed Orion to the moon atop a massive Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. This is Orion’s first-ever trip beyond Earth orbit, but the capsule ticked boxes like a veteran, mission team members said.
