Here’s an update on the Orio/Artemis-1 mission, a photo, a video of what’s going to happen when it splashes down on Sunday, and another video for lagniappe.
I know it is likely too late for today’s Hili, but in case you want to mention location of some updated Artemis material on the Nasa mission blog: the blog is updated every day or so and the version from Dec 7 has an embedded six-minute video that shows animation of re-entry process that is planned for Sunday and video of earlier sub-orbital tests of the capsule-parachute and recovery ship systems.
Here’s a photo taken of the Moon’s surface during one of the capsule’s closest approaches (the closest it got was 80 miles or 130 km):
Here’s an informative 6-minute video of what’s happened and how the entry to Earth’s atmosphere and landing will go:
