Artemis 1’s Orion capsule is still on course for Monday’s flyby

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

The Artemis 1 mission launched Wednesday morning (November 16) and sent an unmanned Orion to the Moon on a giant Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. This is Orion’s first-ever voyage beyond Earth orbit, but the capsule has been ticking boxes like a veteran, mission team members said.
