Exceeded the expectations of NASA experts The Orion spacecraft completed its orbit around the Moon.
At the appointed time, the ship turned on the main engine for two and a half minutes to implement the maneuver and flew around the moon, approaching it at a distance of only 130 km. NASA broadcast the rendezvous live, but, unfortunately, we do not yet have a video or photo from the back side – the signal from the device was temporarily absent there.
Orion is currently in the process of entering a deep retrograde orbit around the Moon. He will reach the desired point on November 25th. In this orbit, the ship will remain for about a week to test various systems. After Orion will return to Earth.
