How the Navy will recover NASA’s Artemis 1 Orion spacecraft after the crash

The Artemis 1 mission will soon be coming to an end, and by then the US Navy will be ready to retrieve the Orion spacecraft from the Pacific Ocean.

The Navy trained in conjunction with NASA on the recovery operation, which will involve raising the Orion capsule ocean and towing it aboard the Navy amphibious transport dock USS Portland with a winch. The USS Portland will then bring Orion to port at Naval Base San Diego.
