NASA Experts Discuss Artemis I Splashdown and Next Steps

Following the successful splashdown of the Artemis I mission off the coast of California at 12:40 p.m. EST (17:40 UTC) on Dec. 11, NASA experts will discuss the next steps for the Orion spacecraft. Orion spent 25.5 days in space and travelled 1.4 million miles (2.3 million km) around the Moon and back after launching aboard the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket on Nov. 16 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

The Artemis I mission is the first integrated test of NASA’s deep space exploration systems: the Orion spacecraft, the SLS rocket, and Kennedy Space Center’s Exploration Ground Systems.
