The ground crew in charge of the Artemis 1 flight have brought down to Earth and released the high-resolution images that the Orion spacecraft took during its visit to the Moon on December 5th!
We remind readers that on December 5th, the spacecraft flew less than 80 miles (130 km) above the lunar surface before continuing its journey back to Earth. The return remains scheduled for December 11.
With just four days left in the historic 25.5-day mission, Artemis 1 is about to come to an end. It was a huge success, with Orion entering and then exiting its target distant retrograde orbit around the Moon. Throughout the mission, many memorable photos have been captured, but a newly released set contains some of the best taken so far.
Here are the rest of the photos from the gallery:
