The Artemis moon mission breaks contact with the Webb Space Telescope
Hunger to connect
There is a lack of communication resources, and the Deep Space Network is almost entirely occupied by Artemis
Everything else beyond Earth’s orbit is currently under NASA’s Artemis 1 mission. The uncrewed Orion capsule left lunar orbit last Thursday, and has now flown by the moon for the last time. She is now on her way home, expected on December 11th. To ensure that nothing happens in the last few meters, the spacecraft is in close contact with the mission center, which requires massive communications. In fact, it’s so big that even for prestigious missions like the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), communication resources are becoming scarce.
