Orion capsule from Artemis 1 still on track for lunar flight on Monday

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

The Artemis 1 mission launched Wednesday morning (Nov. 16), sending an unmanned 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 has ticked boxes like a veteran, mission team members said.
