Earth from the Moon Latest Images: A capsule reaches the moon for the first time since NASA’s Apollo program 50 years ago. That’s why his $4.1 billion test flight, which started last Wednesday, is so important.

Pale Blue Dot Earth: NASA’s Orion capsule reached the Moon last Monday. However, at that time, communication was lost for 30 minutes. As a result, Houston flight controllers were unable to determine whether the capsule was actually starting its engines. By the way, it was the first time in 50 years since NASA’s Apollo program that a capsule reached the moon. That’s why his $4.1 billion test flight, which started last Wednesday, is so important.

Previous Apollo 11, 12, and 14 landing sites also include the Orion capsule journey, the first three lunar sites ever reached by humans. The capsule launched on November 16 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida atop NASA’s most powerful rocket. Once the capsule leaves the lunar surface, its cameras will send images back to Earth. If all goes well, another ‘engine start’ will take place on Friday and it will be put into a sloping orbit.

The capsule will orbit the Moon for about a week before returning to Earth. It is scheduled to fall into the Pacific on December 11th. The capsule has no lander and no contact with the Moon. If this mission is successful, NASA plans to conduct a mission to send astronauts to the moon in 2024. The space station then attempts to land a spacecraft near the South Pole of her Moon in 2025.

The distance from Earth to the Moon is 38,400 km. NASA’s mission is to return mankind to the moon. That is why the Artemis mission is being carried out. This mission will land the first woman and the first black man on the moon. The moon will be explored by new technology. NASA then set its sights on sending the first astronauts from the Moon to Mars.
