Where is Artemis 1 now?

Nasa has continued to provide updates on the progress of the Orion spacecraft via social media and blog posts.

You’ll be watching the Artemis 1 mission closely as it rockets away from Earth in case it’s yet to be aborted.

Artemis I is not a manned mission, but it must orbit the moon to test three key components.

These are Nasa’s Space Launch System (SLS), the Orion spacecraft and the European Service Module (ESM).

At the time of writing, Nasa has confirmed that the Orion spacecraft is continuing toward the moon, having now completed a crucial correction to its target.

In its last update on Nov. 17, Nasa said Orion conducted a second outbound trajectory using auxiliary engines.

It came just a day after investigators checked in with 10 CubeSats deployed from the upper stage of the Space Launch System rocket.

Nasa’s Johnson Space Center says it will host a Nov. 18 briefing presenting the next set of maneuvers required to enter a distant retrograde orbit.

When will Artemis 1 land on the moon?

The Orion spacecraft and ESM should come within 62 miles of the lunar surface and then travel 40,000 miles beyond.

However, a landing is not to be expected.

Once the rocket has orbited the dark side of the moon, it should land in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of San Diego.

The entire mission is scheduled to be completed within 26 days – with a tentative landing date of December 11th.

When was Artemis 1 launched?

The rocket launched in the early hours of November 16, 2022.

The rocket missed its initial launch time at 1:04 a.m. ET (6:04 a.m. GMT), but lifted off at around 1:47 a.m. ET.

US Space Agency Administrator Bill Nelson said it was the largest shockwave he had experienced on a launch.

Nasa says this mission is important to humanity as it aims to bring humans back to the moon.

It is hoped that Artemis 2 will carry people around the moon in the next few years.

Both missions build on Artemis 3, which aims to bring the first woman and the first person of color to the lunar surface.

NASA says it has now opened “a new chapter in human lunar exploration.”

Once the Artemis missions bring people to the moon, we hope to be able to reach Mars.

Exploring the lunar surface and its resources could help create a lunar base for humans and launch space rockets more efficiently.
