The NASA moon mission “Artemis 1” is on its way home. The unmanned “Orion” capsule fired its engines on Thursday and swung out of its orbit around the moon, as the US space agency Nasa announced.

On Monday, the capsule is scheduled to fly close to the moon again during its test flight before it is expected to return to Earth on December 11th.

The capsule swung into the orbit around 80,000 kilometers from the moon about a week ago and then flew halfway. Because of the great distance, it took her about six days.
