NASA's Orion spacecraft just made its closest approach to the moon on Monday morning during the fifth day of the Artemis 1 mission. The uncrewed capsule flew about 81 miles above the lunar surface. Artemis I launched from Florida last Wednesday. The nearly month-long journey around the moon is a critical demonstration for NASA's lunar program, and sets the stage for astronauts to return to the moon's surface.
