Artemis I mission: Orion's journey around the Moon
2022-03-04 – Animation of the Artemis I mission, an uncrewed test flight for the Orion spacecraft.
After a launch atop the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Orion travels to the Moon, spends time in lunar orbit, and finally returns to Earth with a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.
Planned for launch in 2022, Artemis I is the first mission in the NASA-led Artemis program, a campaign that will push human space exploration deeper into space to the Moon and on to Mars.
