The crew module of Orion will split from the service module just before it approaches Earth’s atmosphere. During reentry, the service module will burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere. Orion will use a novel “skip entry” maneuver after the service module separates in order to more precisely splash down at the landing spot. NASA claims that this is the first instance of a human-rated spacecraft carrying out this reentry maneuver.
The spacecraft is already in position for retrieval by a landing and recovery crew made up of US Navy amphibious specialists, US Air Force weather specialists, engineers, and technicians. The team will make an effort to retrieve Orion as well as some of the equipment that will be expelled during the landing, including as the forward bay cover and three main parachutes.

Orion will descend into the upper atmosphere for its skip entrance and then use the friction and lift to “skip” out of it. It will skip once and then re-enter the atmosphere to begin its final plunge.
Orion will travel more than 40,000 kilometers per hour when it enters the atmosphere of Earth. The spaceship will travel 523 kilometers less as a result of the atmosphere. The spacecraft’s parachute deployment will start when it is roughly 8 kilometers above the surface of the Earth. You may watch the event live below through NASA’s webcast.
