The historic space mission will end on December 11th.  On this day, the NASA Orion spacecraft, which circled the moon, will return to Earth

Orion began its journey to Earth, firing on Dec. 1 to leave lunar orbit thousands of miles above the moon’s surface. Engineers have tested systems to better understand how the spacecraft works in anticipation of future missions with astronauts on board.,” NASA said.

On the occasion of the return of Orion, the US space agency has scheduled several press conferences. The first will take place on December 5, and will discuss the flyby of the moon. At a press event on December 8, Orion will be told about how Orion will enter the Earth’s atmosphere, how it will descend and how it will splash down in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of San Diego (California, USA). Finally, the final press conference on the fact of Orion splashdown is on December 11th.

A lot of attention is focused on Orion because astronauts will later go to the Moon on this ship (as part of the Artemis 2 mission, scheduled for 2024). In turn, the flight to the Moon is considered by NASA as a training mission for a manned flight to Mars.
