NASA’s Artemis I Orion capsule broke records last week as it continued its journey away from Earth and the Moon.

Over the weekend, the uncrewed Orion broke the record set by Apollo 13 in 1970 for the farthest a human-rated spacecraft had ever been from Earth as it cruised more than 250,000 meters.

On Monday, Orion marked the halfway point of its 25-day journey by reaching its furthest distance from Earth at nearly 270,000 miles.
