Space News

As you know, we have been following very closely the Artemis mission. In this blog, we bring the latest update. 

The Orion spacecraft had splashed down in the Pacific after which some tests were performed on it. Now, NASA has opened its hatch and is busy unpacking the spacecraft. The payloads will be checked and reused for future missions. 

Artemis was launched on November 16th, 2022 and returned to Earth after its 25 days mission. It was a reconnaissance mission before Artemis 2 flies with a crewed mission followed by a crewed landing by Artemis 3.
