NASA’s Moon mission Artemis 1 has begun to bear its first fruit. Launched to the Moon by Space Launch System (SLS) rocket Orion spacecraftHe recorded some very important images. It also broke records by going further than any spacecraft ever designed to transport humans.
Orion has reached the furthest point ever
NASA’s Orion spacecraft entered orbit of the Moon the other day. The plan for the uncrewed spacecraft is to provide the necessary tests before crewed missions to the Moon. He managed to arouse curiosity with the detailed photographs he sent from the Moon.
Orion, narrow retrograde It travels in an orbit called orbit. According to NASA, it is 64 thousand km away from the Moon. It moves in the opposite direction of the Moon, minimizing the need for fuel. It will orbit half the Moon before returning to Earth.
NASA has given a date for the colony to be established on the Moon!
NASA made ambitious statements for lunar life. Life on the Moon could begin by 2030, according to a NASA administrator.
Orion broke a new record during his journey. It went farther than any spacecraft designed for astronauts had ever gone before. This was in 1970 Apollo 13 It means it beat the previous record set by
The record held by Apollo 13 was set by going 400,171 km from Earth. Orion is expected to go a total distance of 434 thousand 522 km from Earth. It is thought that the spacecraft will reach this distance by Monday at the latest.
Mission Time: 10 days, 8 hrs, 27 min
Orion is 249,666 miles from Earth, 53,687 miles from the Moon, cruising at 2,054 miles per hour.

Orion Integration Manager Jim Geffre said, “Artemis I was designed to push Orion’s systems, and we decided on a distant retrograde orbit as a really good way to do that. “We managed to beat the Apollo 13 record,” he said.
