It’s been 45 years since a crewed spacecraft has been sent to the Moon, but NASA plans to do it again in just a few years. The Agency recently released a video showing the profile for the first uncrewed test of its new Moon mission profile, called Exploration Mission 1 (EM-1):


In the next eight minutes, you’ll experience a twenty-five-and-a-half-day mission from roll-out to recovery of the first integrated flight test of NASA’s Orion spacecraft and the Space Launch System rocket, launching from the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This uncrewed mission will be the first in a planned series of exploration missions beyond the moon, signaling what astronauts who dare to operate in deep space will experience on future flights.
