NASA’s Artemis 1 Orion space capsule begins its cross-country journey to Florida

After flying to the Moon and back, NASA’s spacecraft should finally finish its long journey by the end of 2022.

NASA officials said in an update late Thursday (Dec. 21) that the Orion spacecraft is on a truck bound for NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in coastal Florida after touchdown in the Pacific Ocean Dec. 11 to wrap up Artemis 1. The spacecraft orbited the moon before collapse, and it has been preparing for its cross-country voyage to Florida since arriving in the Port of San Diego on Dec. 13.
