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

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

The Artemis 1 mission launched on Wednesday morning (Nov. 16), sending an uncrewed Orion toward the moon atop a huge Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. This is Orion’s first-ever journey beyond Earth orbit, but the capsule has been checking boxes like a veteran, mission team members said.
