Didn't watch it launch but I did hear it. It wasn't as loud as I thought it would be. Then again I am about 15 miles from the launch site.

NASA Moon mission 'exceeding' expectaions

On the third day after lifting off from Florida bound for the Moon, the Orion spacecraft is "exceeding performance expectations," NASA officials said on Friday.

Orion is already some 200,000 miles (320,000 kilometers) from Earth and preparing to perform the first of four main thrusts scheduled during the mission using its engines.

This maneuver, which will take place early Monday morning, will bring the spacecraft as close as 80 miles (130 kilometers) from the lunar surface, in order to take advantage of the Moon's gravitational force.

Nasa's Artemis spacecraft has arrived at the Moon.

The Orion capsule swept 130km (80 miles) above the lunar surface, and it will now begin to enter a larger orbit.

The vehicle was out of contact for 34 minutes during this manoeuvre, which began at 12:44 GMT, as it took place on the far side of the Moon.

As the signal returned, the spacecraft sent back an image of the Earth. Nasa says so far the mission has "exceeded expectations" since last week's launch.

Allegedly 60 years ago NASA has landed people on the moon and so allegedly they walk there with with a technology that is equivalent of a dish washer. The moon should have been crowded with space tourists by now,  but surprisingly isn't. Furthermore to this day no nation including NASA has sent manned missions to the moon . Strange isn't it?
