wpeckham. Thanks for the clarification. I was a bit uncertain but it's now pleasantly obvious you are not among the Anti Science crew. Here's a cute crowd pushback for you-------

We now (as if we didn't before) have absolute, undeniable proof the Earth is not flat, since if it were, cats would have pushed everything sticking up, off the edge!

(tongue firmly in cheek)

I retired with ten years in teaching (Science and Mathematics), 23 years at combat arms in the US military, 37 years in IT, and degrees in Physics, Mathematics, and computer Science. IF I were anti science I would have to be anti-ME! ;-)

PS. I have cats. Cats, nothing is safe without being locked down. Correction: Cats, nothing is safe.

@NASAArtemis
On the sixth day of its mission,
@NASA_Orion
approached the Moon, passing over several Apollo landing sites and as close to 80 miles (128 km) above the lunar surface.

Teams are preparing for Orion to enter a distant retrograde orbit of the Moon: https://blogs.nasa.gov/artemis/?linkId=190571580

Unfortunate:
"The CubeSat to Study Solar Particles (CuSP) launched as an Artemis I payload on 1:47 AM EST on Nov. 16, 2022. CuSP was deployed from its canister about eight hours after launch. Approximately two hours after deployment, CuSP transmissions were received by an Open Loop Receiver (OLR) operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Radio Science Systems Group. The OLR recorded approximately 60 minutes of transmission from CuSP. Unfortunately, the CuSP team has not re-established contact with the CubeSat after the initial contact." https://blogs.nasa.gov/sunspot/2022/...ission-update/

It is indeed unfortunate though I'm curious to know if any arrangements were made to compensate for the highly public assessment of unusual risk of such unfortunate events as RUDs. Considering it was NASA's plan that Artemis 1 would be expected to reveal any and all basic defects, put through extreme case scenarios as it were, I'm assuming some level of compenmsation existed. There will certainly be repeats of any failed deployments.

Currently I am more concerned about the problems with very high power launch vehicles and damage to the pad.
