Orion has splashed down off the coast of Baja, California. Our spacecraft is home.

We're back after a 1.4 million mile journey around the Moon.

Inside the Multi-Payload Processing Facility at @NASAKennedy , technicians start to remove components from the #Artemis  I spacecraft, including avionics boxes and a crew seat that will be inspected and reused on Artemis II.
