The Artemis 1 Orion spacecraft is on its way back to Earth after a flyby of the Moon

For NASA’s Orion spacecraft, the next stop is home.

The unmanned spacecraft flying on NASA’s Artemis 1 mission passed a major milestone in its mission today (Dec. 5) when it successfully executed a 207-second engine burn while only 79 miles (128 kilometers) above the lunar surface. The maneuver put Orion on track to return home, where it will crash-land in the Pacific Ocean on December 11, if all goes according to plan.
