The Orion spacecraft from NASA successfully eclipsed  Apollo 13's previous flight record.

A new NASA flight record was established by the Artemis 1 Orion crew vehicle. On Saturday morning around 8:40 a.m. ET, Orion made history by becoming the

 first spacecraft ever to travel further than any spacecraft meant to carry humans. The previous record was held by Apollo 13 in 1970. 

As of 10:17 a.m. ET, the distance between Orion and Earth was roughly 249,666 miles (401,798 kilometers).

"Artemis My far-off retrograde orbit was chosen as an effective means of putting pressure on the Orion systems for which I was created "Jim Geffre, the manager of spacecraft 

integration for the Orion mission, made this statement. We beat the Apollo 13 record because we were high above the Moon and had a very wide orbit. 

But what really mattered was breaking new ground in space exploration by dispatching probes to previously uncharted regions of the galaxy.

It's only appropriate that Artemis 1 set the new record, given all the possible missions. notes that the initial Apollo 13 flight plan didn't include any attempts

 to set any new records. The previous record was established by the Apollo 13 Odyssey command module, which traveled a distance of 248,655 miles (400,171 kilometers)

from Earth. This was accomplished only after NASA was forced to calculate a new return course due to an explosion midway through the mission.
