7 stunning images from Artemis I's final trip around the Moon

Now back to Earth!


Orion is on its way home.

Just 19 days after liftoff, the Artemis I spacecraft is currently cruising back to Earth.

On December 5, the spacecraft slingshotted around the Moon one final time.

Orion completed a maneuver known as a return powered flyby, designed to break itself free from the Moon’s gravity.
