it's back!

Watched the splashdown of the Orion Artemis craft.

All looks well, to my untrained eye.

Certainly the large heat-shield did not disintegrate or fracture or blast apart from the high speeds and high temperature.

The "skipping" technique was very interesting! They skipped a capsule, like Amélie and her smooth stones!

That's a big accomplishment.

Congrats to the NASA and ESA teams. Lots of hard work done. Lots to do of course, going forwards, with humans on board, next time.

Splashdown at 12:41 EST.

Orion capsule recovery

It looks in amazing shape, actually!
