We finally have liftoff! NASA's Artemis I rocket is currently en route to the moon after a successful launch out of Earth's atmosphere early this morning. The launch has been a long time coming: Numerous delays including fueling leaks, hardware issues, and Florida's hurricane season have made it seem at times that the mission would never see success.

The mission is scheduled to last nearly a month, with the capsule splashing down into the Pacific Ocean on December 11. Between now and then, the Orion Capsule (the part that actually goes into space after detaching from the Space Launch System Rocket) will make its way to the moon and back.

The capsule is traveling alone. But the goal of future Artemis missions is to finally send astronauts back to the moon, something NASA hasn't done since the Apollo era. Read on to learn more about this moon mission and future ones.

NASA successfully launches Artemis I toward the Moon
 
Liftoff! NASA’s Artemis I mission is finally underway to the Moon. There were 500 seconds between the ground and glory. On early Wednesday morning at 1:47 a.m. Eastern, Artemis I ignited its engines, initiating 8.8 million pounds of thrust in a little more than eight minutes. 

The first phase of this human-grade Moonshot harnesses the momentum of the Space Launch System’s novel launch technology and the Sun’s energy upon four unfurled Orion capsule solar arrays to fly on an epic lunar journey not seen since the Apollo era.

A few minutes after launch, the solid rocket boosters on the side jettisoned, while the core engine stage cutoff occurred at 1:56 a.m. Eastern, at which point the craft entered orbit. Today marks the first leg in its journey of 1.3 million miles.

We’ve been trying to reach you about your (investment) vehicles’ extended losses
 
We’re giving you a final courtesy wake-up call. This is one call you don’t want to send to voicemail (sorry Grandma, can you text next time?). Because with personal portfolios dropping a whopping 44% this year, this is a call to renew your investing plan.

With Masterworks. This unicorn investment platform lets everyday people invest in museum-quality artworks by names like Picasso and Banksy. Contemporary art not only outpaced the S&P by 131%* over the last 26 years, but also remained resilient through downturns like the dot-com bubble and Great Financial Crisis. 

With six of Masterworks’ last seven exits realizing a net return of +21.5%, shares have been selling out fast. Six?! That’s even more than the number of spam calls I get daily…

Fortunately, Inverse readers can skip the waitlist with this exclusive link.

This supercar just shattered an EV speed record
 
Electric vehicles are flying forward, not just in sales and adoption, but in defining how and why battery-powered vehicles exist.

The Rimac Nevera, a supercar developed by Rimac Group, a Croatian company, is doing its part by pushing EV speed boundaries. According to Rimac, the Nevera broke a speed record among electric production cars late last month, topping out its supercar at an eye-watering 258 mph.

That kind of speed (about a third of the speed of sound), is hard to fathom. According to Rimac, the Nevera uses its four electric motors to produce about 1,914 horsepower. That equates to a rocket-like 0–60 mph in about 1.85 seconds and 0-100 mph in 4.3 seconds.

Secret Invasion will be a big "departure" from previous Marvel shows, star says
 
The invasion is about to begin. In 2023, Marvel Studios will unleash Secret Invasion, a new Disney+ miniseries featuring Samuel L. Jackson back in his role as Nick Fury. This time, the ex-S.H.I.E.L.D. director gets wrapped up in a Skrull conspiracy, as the alien shapeshifters are hiding in large numbers on Earth.

Martin Freeman will also return as CIA agent Everett Ross, who was most recently seen in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

In a new interview with Digital Spy, Freeman said Secret Invasion feels different, although he admits he hasn’t seen much of the final product.

This inflatable device could be the key to landing humans on Mars
 
It might look like a giant loudspeaker, but this inflatable NASA device wasn’t designed to blast sounds into space. Instead, this puffy disc might hold the key tolanding humans soundly on Mars.

It’s an inflatable heat shield designed to create drag in the Red Planet’s thin atmosphere and soften the landing for heavy missions. But before attaching it to any Mars-bound spacecraft, the novel heat shield had to be tested in Earth’s atmosphere.

Last week, NASA successfully inflated and landed the device in a demonstration called the Low-Earth Orbit Flight Test of an Inflatable Decelerator — LOFTID for short.

Pentiment enthralls with its unique art style and engaging world
 
I watched in horror as the executioner’s blade met the neck of its target and blood gushed forth.

Given the choice between averting my eyes or facing the consequences of my actions, I clicked the latter. I owed it to this person to witness their death, having chosen to accuse them of the murder. Every action you take in Pentiment directly impacts the fate of everyone else, you can’t help but feel a deep sense of responsibility — and oftentimes guilt.

This historical murder mystery isn’t what you might expect from Obsidian Entertainment, known for first-person action RPGs like The Outer Worlds and Fallout: New Vegas. Everything about Pentiment feels as carefully designed as the illuminated manuscripts it draws inspiration from, delivering an enthralling mystery that is a wonder to behold.
