NASA releases breathtaking image of our planet from Artemis I rocket and it’s bad news for flat earthers
| Last updated
NASA's Artemis I mission has finally lifted off and it has captured incredible footage of Earth as it started its journey into outer space.
Keen space fans crowded the beaches and roads near Florida's Kennedy Space Center to see the The Orion kick off its 25-day mission to travel around the moon, in what will be a USD$4 billion (AUD$5.9 billion, £3.5 billion) mission.
NASA shared the incredible 24-second clip on Twitter of Earth shrinking into the distance.
"As NASA Orion begins the Artemis I mission to the Moon, the spacecraft captured these stunning views of our home planet," the space centre said on social media.
NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket will go on an epic journey that will stretch more than 64,000 kilometres beyond the Moon before it returns to Earth.

The space mission is designed to demonstrate that the Orion is ready to carry astronauts to the moon in future Artemis missions.
To capture the incredible adventure, the rocket has been equipped with 24 cameras on the rocket and spacecraft to document the journey.
There are eight cameras on the SLS and a further16 on the Orion.
The cameras will capture and collect incredible images and data that will give will give NASA experts an exciting insight into the Moon.
The cameras will also catch further proof that may finally put the Flat Earth theory to bed.
People on social media have been tagging the Flat Earth Society to show them the incredible footage as the Orion travels further into space.

Never a full picture is it? Give ammo to these flat earth lot.— Mick (@Bigmick_) November 16, 2022
A person on Twitter said: "Looks like we’re finally launching tonight. Can’t wait to see some beautiful photos of earth from the moon in the morning!!! Tomorrow provides more proof against moon landing and flat-earth conspirators."
Another globalist added: OK #flatearth people. This is a picture of Earth taken THIS MORNING @ approximately 11:30 am EST by the Artemis 1/Orion mission to The Moon. Oh, and no, it's not at a sound stage in Hollywood."
However, the clip has already been branded as a 'fake' by some naysayers.
One user said: "Great footage, needs a wider angled lens to get both corners in the frame."
Another added: "The earth is a flat dome. The proof is in this video."
A third said: "Modern special FX are quite something. Good show, not believable though."
Honestly, NASA, just launch them into space so they can see for themselves at this point.
