The Space Launch System (SLS) rocket will launch NASA's Orion spacecraft from Kennedy Space Center

After launch, Orion will enter orbit around the Earth, at which point it will deploy four solar panels to generate electricity for the spacecraft

The top stage of the SLS rocket will supply Orion with the necessary thrust to exit the Earth's orbit and head for the Moon

Two hours after launch, the Orion spacecraft is planned to separate from the SLS rocket's upper stage

With the support of a servicing module provided by the European Space Agency, the Orion spacecraft will continue its trip to the moon

During its closest approach, the Orion spacecraft will fly approximately 100 kilometres (60 miles) above the lunar surface

Orion will utilise the Moon's gravity to achieve a retrograde orbit approximately 40,000 miles beyond the Moon

Orion will remain in this orbit for longer than six days in order to collect data and allow mission controllers to assess its performance

In order to return to Earth, Orion will activate its servicing module and then utilise the Moon's gravity to accelerate its travel

Before returning to Earth, the crew module and service module of the Orion spacecraft will separate

The heat shield will protect the crew module when Orion reenters Earth's atmosphere at 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit

Orion will splash down in the Pacific Ocean at 20 miles per hour after parachutes slow it down
