    Orion spacecraft

    RTHK has an article about NASA's spacecraft ORION that just got onto moon's orbit. What happened to Artemis?

    Artemis launched a number of cube and other projects into the lunar orbit .. forget the names.

    Never mind ... The lunar module which returns to earth is Orion. The rocket / mission is Artemis. Complicated keeping track of names..

    Artemis is twin sister of Apollo, in Greece mythology. Apollo was moon god. Artemis and Orion...

    The Apollo Program was Nasa's effort to put men onto Moon. Apollo ended in 1972.

    The Artemis Program is Nasa's current effort to put both men and women onto Mars. They are using Moon as testing ground , and then go to Mars sometimes in 2030s.

    The Orion is a spacecraft of the Artemis Program.

    I think the current trip to Moon is very boring --been there done that during Apollo.
    But they plan to have a permanent Moon base, and that would be new and very interesting.

    I sent message to RTHK; so far they have not corrected the article.

    Perhaps the wording in this article makes it clearer for you?
