2022-11-16 – On the first day of the Artemis I mission, this image of Earth was captured as Orion heads to the Moon. 

The European Service Module has four 7-metre-long solar wings. The solar array can turn on two axes, ensuring the panels remain aligned with the Sun to maximize power. Designed by the European Space Agency, the European Service Module provides electricity, propulsion, thermal control, air and water.  (Credit: NASA)
