Planet Earth from Orion

Explanation: A Space Launch System rocket left planet Earth on Wednesday, November 16 at 1:47am EST carrying the Orion spacecraft on the Artemis 1 mission, the first integrated test of NASA’s deep space exploration systems. Over an hour after liftoff from Kennedy Space Center’s historic Launch Complex 39B, one of Orion’s external video cameras captured this view of its new perspective from space. In the foreground are Orion’s Orbital Maneuvering System engine and auxillary engines, at the bottom of the European Service Module. Beyond one of the module’s 7-meter long extended solar array wings lies the spacecraft’s beautiful home world. The Artemis 1 mission will last almost four weeks, testing capabilities to enable human exploration of the Moon and Mars. The uncrewed Orion spacecraft is expected to fly by the Moon on November 21, performing a close approach to the lunar surface on its way to a retrograde orbit 70,000 kilometers beyond the Moon.

说明: 在11月16日(三)美东凌晨1:47,一艘名为阿尔忒弥斯1号(Artemis 1)的太空发射系统火箭离开地球,执行NASA的首个深空探索系统综合测试任务,并推送猎户座飞船前往月球。从肯尼迪太空中心历史悠久的39B号发射场升空的1个多小时之后,猎户座的一部外挂摄像机,从太空记录了它的新视野。图像前景是位于猎户座的欧洲服务舱底部的轨道操纵系统引擎及辅助引擎。在这个模块舱翼展7米的太阳能板数组后方,则是宇宙飞船美丽的家乡——地球。阿尔忒弥斯1号任务将持续将近4个星期,以测试它协助人类探索月球和火星的能力。无人驾驶的猎户座飞船,在前往月球后方70,000公里的逆行轨道途中,预计于11月21日近距离掠过月球表面。
