    This link MIGHT take you to an animation of the Artemis 1 flight path (5+ wk mission) ...

    Basically should be about 5 days out, and 5 days back (not quite as "quick" as Apollo), with one complete "high" orbit of the moon in about the same amount of time it takes for 1 lunar cycle (approx. 28 days). I think the orbital radius is something like 40,000 mi above the lunar surface (compared to 50-100 mi for Apollo - I'm guessin'?)?

    Lift-off should sound great with my Dayton plate amp pushing my SP-10 !

    That's a cool animation. Looks like an 80's video game.

    I'm guessing it gets close enough to the moon on its initial approach to get 'slingshot' out into it's orbit around earth. I sound like I'm narrating a Star Trek episode, but it seems like things have to be 100% or close to it for it to work at all.

    Man, they be some smart people up there at NASA!

    That will give that HiVi SP10 a workout!

    Just made me think of Jules Verne's book 'From the Earth to the Moon' where they shot a manned projectile like a huge bullet.

    Watched a video on this company last week...

    Basically spinning a projectile super-duper fast, then letting it go so that it makes it part-way through the atmosphere where the rest of the journey to low-earth orbit can be completed with a small self-contained fuel tank. It's got a way to go, but it's interesting; and man, is that thing moving when it releases!​
