Artemis 1 Mission Details

Orion is packed with things like Amazon Alexa, mannequins, miniature satellites, and most importantly, a host of navigation and data collection devices. These special instruments inside the spacecraft will track vital information about its trajectory, safety, radiation absorption, and more.

Essentially, this ship will chart the paths of future human-crewed missions like Artemis II and Artemis III. Once liftoff has occurred, the rocket will be in space for 42 days , traveling 386,000 kilometers from Earth to the Moon, then continuing 64,000 kilometers beyond. Orion is estimated to spend between 6 and 19 days collecting data in a distant retrograde orbit (DRO), before returning to Earth and falling into the sea on October 10.

Update: The date and times of the original article have been changed, due to the suspension of the launch of the Artemis 1 mission, which was initially scheduled for August 29. NASA engineers had to reschedule the countdown due to technical failures in one of the engines.
