Too Long; Didn't Read
The community discussed the launch of the Artemis 1 by NASA and some cool prospects for space travel. The Artemis I mission, NASA's first deep space voyage of an astronaut-capable spacecraft in fifty years, was launched at 1:48 a.m. on Nov. 16. If all goes as planned, Orion will make a whirling voyage more than a quarter million miles from Earth, passing the moon by a distance of 40,000 miles. The U.S. space agency estimates that when it returns to the Pacific Ocean on December 11, it will have traveled 1.3 million miles.
